Book Description

The second edition offers an update on the single most comprehensive survey of the two intertwined fields of spintronics and magnetism, covering the diverse array of materials and structures, including silicon, organic semiconductors, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and engineered nanostructures. It focuses on seminal pioneering work, together with the latest in cutting-edge advances, notably extended discussion of two-dimensional materials beyond graphene, topological insulators, skyrmions, and molecular spintronics. The main sections cover physical phenomena, spin-dependent tunneling, control of spin and magnetism in semiconductors, and spin-based applications.

Igor Žutić is a Professor of Physics at the University at Buffalo, the State University of New York. His work spans topics from high-temperature superconductors, Majorana fermions, unconventional magnetism, proximity effects, and two-dimensional materials, to prediction of various spin-based devices that are not limited to the concept of magnetoresistance used in commercial application for magnetically stored information. Such devices, including spin photodiodes, spin solar cells, spin transistors, and spin lasers (front cover illustration) have already been experimentally demonstrated.
