Rashba and Dresselhaus Couplings in Halide Perovskites: Accomplishments and Opportunities for Spintronics and Spin–Orbitronics

Rashba and Dresselhaus Couplings in Halide Perovskites: Accomplishments and Opportunities for Spintronics and Spin–Orbitronics
Mikaël Kepenekian, Jacky Even
In halide hybrid organic–inorganic perovskites (HOPs), spin–orbit coupling (SOC) presents a well-documented large influence on band structure. However, SOC may also present more exotic effects, such as Rashba and Dresselhaus couplings. In this Perspective, we start by recalling the main features of this effect and what makes HOP materials ideal candidates for the generation and tuning of spin-states. Then, we detail the main spectroscopy techniques able to characterize these effects and their application to HOPs. Finally, we discuss potential applications in spintronics and in spin–orbitronics in those nonmagnetic systems, which would complete the skill set of HOPs and perpetuate their ride on the crest of the wave of popularity started with optoelectronics and photovoltaics.
