Hybridized gold with graphene induces giant Rashba splitting

One of the major focus areas in graphene research is the spintronic applications of graphene. However, this depends on an efficient induction of spin-orbit coupling in graphene

Now, it is demonstrated using angle resolved photo-emission spectroscopy that hybridization between gold (a special configuration) and graphene can lead to enhanced spin-orbit splitting of the order of 100 meV
