Novel two-dimensional electronic systems present unique opportunities for spintronic applications. In this seminar I will discuss two specific examples. First, we explore the potential of interfacial exchange interaction in 2D materials for spin control. Using graphene as a prototype, we demonstrate that its coupling to a model magnetic insulator (EuS) produces a substantial magnetic exchange field (> 14 T), which yields orders-of-magnitude enhancement in the spin signal originated from the Zeeman spin-Hall effect.
