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
