Mechanically assisted spin-dependent transport of electrons
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2005

Spin-dependent tunneling of electrons through magnetic nanostructures containing a mechanically movable quantum dot is considered. It is shown that the mechanically assisted current can be made strongly sensitive to an external magnetic field, leading to a giant magnetotransmittance effect for weak external fields of order 1-10 Oe
