Description
The ability to generate, manipulate and detect spin-polarised electrical currents in magnetic materials has resulted in an explosion of activity in the now burgeoning field of spintronics, where the spin, as well as the charge, of the electron is used to process and store information. Articles about the promise and future impact of spintronics are commonplace in general audience magazines such as New Scientist, Scientific American, IEEE Spectrum, Physics Today, and Physics World. Evidence for the scientific impact is found in the high number of research articles in journals such as Nature, Science and Physical Review Letters (the 1988 PRL reporting the discovery...
