Title: Spin-to-Charge Conversion in Bi Films and Bi / Ag Bilayers

Abstract

Thermally injected pure spin current phenomena have been explored in Bi / Y 3 Fe 5 O 12 and Bi / Ag / Y 3 Fe 5 O 12 structures at room temperature. We illustrate that although pure spin current has been injected into the Bi layer and the Bi / Ag bilayer, there is little detectable signal of spin-to-charge conversion, except the distinctive Nernst signal from the Bi layer, in sharp contrast to the inverse Rashba-Edelstein effect claimed in these systems.
