Recently, interconnected nanowire networks have been found suitable as flexible macroscopic spin caloritronic devices. The 3D nanowire networks are fabricated by direct electrodeposition in track-etched polymer templates with crossed nano-channels. This technique allows the fabrication of crossed nanowires consisting of both homogeneous ferromagnetic metals and multilayer stack with successive layers of ferromagnetic and non-magnetic metals, with controlled morphology and material composition. The networks exhibit extremely high, magnetically modulated thermoelectric power factors. Moreover, large spin-dependent Seebeck coefficients were directly extracted from experimental measurements on multilayer nanowire networks. This work provides a simple and cost-effective way to fabricate large-scale flexible and shapeable thermoelectric devices exploiting the spin degree of freedom. View Full-Text
