Carbon-based materials are the promising candidates for the design of multifunctional spintronic devices, owing to their fascinating inherent attributes such as the ballistic transport nature, long spin coherence time, etc. Here, we report the spin-dependent electron transport properties of a transpolyacetylene channel sandwiched between two semi-infinite hydrogen-passivated zigzag graphene nanoribbon (ZGNR) electrodes within the framework of spin-polarized density functional theory (DFT) and non-equilibrium Green's function (NEGF) formalisms. The proposed device exhibits an excellent spin-dependent transport behavior within the bias window of [-0.5 V, 0.5 V]. In parallel configuration (PC), the device offers an ideal spin filtration efficiency of almost 100% within the bias range of [-0.4 V, 0.4 V], and in antiparallel configuration (APC), it exhibits negative differential resistance (NDR), dual-spin rectification, and dual-spin filtration effects. Also, a high tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR) of 1.2 x 10(5)% is achieved. To validate the aforementioned effects, the transmission spectra along with the area enclosed by the curve, eigenvalues, eigenstates, and quantum conductance have also been analyzed. In addition, the impact of hybridization and torsion defects on the spin-dependent transport phenomenon through trans-polyacetylene has been investigated. Furthermore, the modelled device is observed to exhibit the spin Seebeck effect in PC under the influence of temperature gradient. The proposed device may stand as a good contender for various spintronic and spin caloritronic applications.
