This book explores the recent and on-going research into spin-based devices and nanomagnetic-based technology while giving detailed background on state-of-the-art research. The book focuses on direct applications to devices that have potential to replace CMOS devices for computing applications such as memory, logic and higher order information processing.
This book is devoted to a range of technological problems concerning the growth of magnetically managed carbon nanotubes (CNT) and the development of spintronic nanomemory devices. The issues related to CNTs growth with a predefined morphology are regarded as key challenges for effective CNTs creation and utilization in novel nanoelectronic devices.
Particular emphasis is placed on defining and studying CNTs interconnects with Fe-Pt ferromagnetic nanodrops and substrates as prospective elements for magnetic nanomemory devices and nanosensors. The discussion is focused on appropriate spin transport models and magnetoresistance phenomena for spin-valves systems based on CNTs forest and Fe-Pt layers.
Introduction to Spintronics provides a presentation of the quantum mechanical concept of spin and the technology of using it to store, process, and communicate information. Fully updated and expanded to 18 chapters, this Second Edition:
- Reflects the explosion of study in spin-related physics, addressing seven important physical phenomena with spintronic device applications
- Discusses the recently discovered field of spintronics without magnetism, which allows one to manipulate spin currents by purely electrical means
- Explores lateral spin-orbit interaction and its many nuances, as well as the possibility to implement spin polarizers and analyzers using quantum point contacts
- Introduces the concept of single-domain-nanomagnet-based computing, an ultra-energy-efficient approach to compute and store information using nanomagnets, offering a practical rendition of single-spin logic architecture ideas and an alternative to transistor-based computing hardware
- Features many new drill problems, and includes a solution manual and figure slides with qualifying course adoption

This book covers the aspects of theoretical and experimental approaches for silicon based spintronic materials. The theory parts emphasize on two first-principles methods - the GW method to improve the insulating gaps of the half metals which are a class of materials ideal for spintronic applications, and the linear response theory to calculate electric and magnetic susceptibilities.
The book is focused on three growth methods for doping transition metal elements in alloy and layered forms in Si, and also presents three methods for characterization, emphasizing on how to interpret experimental results.
