Solid State Technology and Devices Seminar: “Origin of strong Rashba spin orbit coupling and spin-Hall effect in Si”

521 Hogan Room Cory Hall
  • Sandeep Kumar, University of California, Riverside
Silicon can be a promising material for spintronics due to long spin diffusion length at room temperature. For realization of Si spintronics, efficient generation of spin current, detection and manipulation is essential. But insignificant intrinsic spin-orbit coupling leads to insignificant spin-Hall effect (spin current generation) and inverse spin-Hall effect (spin current detection), which is...

Letters of recommendation in Berkeley undergraduate admissions: Program evaluation and natural language processing: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

190 Doe Library
  • Jesse Rothstein, Professor, Public Policy and Economics, UC Berkeley
In Fall 2015 and 2016, UC Berkeley asked many freshman applicants to submit letters of recommendation as part of their applications. This was highly controversial. Proponents argued that letters would aid in the identification of disadvantaged students who had overcome obstacles that were not otherwise apparent from their applications, while opponents argued that disadvantaged students were...
