Abstract

Fundamental limitation of current charge-based electronics technology is imminent as the technology progresses ever faster than before. Spin-based electronics or spintronics, which is a new field of electronics utilizing additional spin degree of freedom, is one of many technology options to fundamentally solve the limitation of current electronics. In this paper, current programs and accomplishments of spintronics research in Korea are briefly reviewed. In particular, research accomplishments achieved at KIST are described.
