Spin electronics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Spintronics, which utilizes additional spin degree of freedom in electronic systems, is an emerging research subject in the field of electronics due to its distinct advantages of non-volatility, higher speed, lower power consumption, more functionality, and higher density. Some important spintronic devices are introduced in this chapter and a particular emphasis is placed on spin-transfer torque magnetic random access memory and spin field-effect transistor which are considered to have a great potential in applications. Recent progress and remaining challenges on these devices are described.
