Spin transport in arrays of graphene nanoribbonsMatthias Berl, Bastian Birkner, Andreas Sandner, Silvia Minke, Dieter Weiss, and •Jonathan Eroms — Institut für Experimentelle und Angewandte Physik, Universität Regensburg, Germany

We performed non-local spin valve and Hanle measurements in arrays of graphene nanoribbons in both single and bilayer graphene. Nanoribbons were patterned by electron beam lithography and oxygen-based reactive ion etching. By fabricating several sets of electrodes, we can compare spin transport data in bulk and nanoribbons on the same graphene flake. Due to band-gap opening in the nanoribbons at low temperatures, spin transport measurements were only possible at 200 Kelvin. For single layer graphene we observe that while nanopatterning decreases the electron mobility, the spin lifetime increases from 200 ps to 500 ps. This is consistent with a Dyakonov-Perel-like contribution to spin relaxation. In bilayer graphene, we observe a low electron mobility and high spin lifetimes of about 1 ns in both bulk and nanoribbons, again consistent with Dyakonov-Perel-like spin relaxation. Attempting to see an influence of possible magnetic moments at the sample edges, no clear signature was detected in the Hanle data at 200 Kelvin.
