Gene Project - Hosted by SHAC

Gene Project - Hosted by SHAC

Monday, February 22, 2021 (All day) to Sunday, February 28, 2021 (All day)

UNI's Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC) will be hosting the "Gene Project" February 22 -28. The Gene Project is an event that will highlight information for National Eating Disorder Awareness week while showing the UNI community how to love the "genes" they are in. Our goal is to bring awareness to eating disorders while building a community that supports body positivity. Our "Gene Project" display will appear in Maucker Union February 23 -26 with an informational table in the WRC February 22 -26. Follow us on Instagram for more Gene Project information @uni_shac . For any questions or concerns, please email Kara Hooper at hoopekaa@uni.edu

IRB Learning Tutorial & Discussion

IRB Learning Tutorial & Discussion

Tuesday, March 2, 2021 - 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

IRB Chair Todd Evans offers two IRB tutorials each semester for the campus community. Rather than comprehensive certifiable training, these individualized tutorial sessions are designed to explain the UNI IRB submission and review process within the context of the needs of attendees, their research plans, and preparation of their IRB materials. (Please note: these sessions no longer fulfill the IRB training requirement.) All sessions will be Zoom virtual discussions. Registration is required. For inquires about these sessions, please contact Todd Evans at todd.evans@uni.edu.

Spin Filtering in Two-Dimensional Magnetic Tunnel Junctions

 

The recently discovered two-dimensional van der Waals magnets have attracted a lot of attention from the research community. In my presentation, I will briefly survey the field, and discuss the unique properties they display and the applications they drive using a prototypical magnetic semiconductor, Chromium triiodide (CrI­3). The first-principles methods based on density functional theory are reliable methods for exploring spin-dependent transport in tunnel junctions. In a particular density functional theory study of a tunnel junction involving face-centered cubic Cu (111) electrodes and a CrI3 tunnel barrier, we find about 100% spin polarization of the tunneling current and tunneling magnetoresistance of about 3,000% associated with a change of magnetic ordering in CrI3, consistent with experimental observations.   We interpret these results in terms of the spin and wave-vector dependent evanescent states in CrI3 which control the tunneling conductance. Our results elucidate the mechanisms of spin filtering in CrI3 tunnel junctions and provide important insights for the design of magnetoresistive devices based on 2D magnetic crystals.
