Electronic devices have traditionally been based on controlling the flow of charge. However, electrons carry both charge and "spin", the
latter being responsible for magnetic phenomena. In the last ten years there have been significant advances in our ability to control the spin current in electronic devices, which also shed light on the subtleties of the
quantum world and how quantum objects like spin interact with everyday objects like magnets. Assuming no background or prior acquaintance, this talk will present a general introduction to these recent developments (like the attached example recently published in Science) and suggest possible ways to harness them for a new class of information processing devices(Behin‐Aein et al., Nature Nanotechnology, 5, 266 (2010))
