Explores the most recent developments in the field Addresses the different classes of materials systems currently under investigation for use in spintronics Discusses underlying theory, experimental results, characterization techniques, and device applications Features contributions from international experts Researchers are creating a new generation of spintronic devices that are smaller, more versatile, and more robust than those currently making up silicon chips and circuit elements. Spintronic Materials and Technology provides an in-depth examination of the most recent developments in the materials aspects of this field. This book addresses the classes of materials systems under investigation for use in spintronics, including ferromagnetic metals and alloys, Heusler alloys and half-metallic oxides, and diluted magnetic semiconductors. With contributions from leading experts, it discusses underlying theory, experimental results, characterization techniques, and device applications.
