dc.description.abstractCarrier transport through a graphene zigzag nanoribbon (ZNR) is possible to be blocked by a p-n profile implemented along its transport direction. However, we found that in cases of analogous materials with significant intrinsic spin-orbit coupling (SOC), i.e. silicene and germanene, such a profile on ZNR of these materials allows transmission mostly through spin-orbit coupled energy window due to the loss of the parity of wave functions at different energies caused by SOC. Next, a p-i-n scheme on germanene ZNR is proposed to simultaneously permit edge transmission and decimate bulk transmission. The transmission spectrum is shown to mitigate the effect of thermal broadening on germanene and silicene ZNR based spin-separators by improving spin polarization yield by 400% and 785%, respectively, at 300 K. The importance of proper gate voltage and position for such performance is further elucidated. Finally, the modulation the current output of the proposed U-shape p-i-n device while maintaining its spin polarization is discussed. © The Author(s) 2017.
