English Abstract

Spintronics is a new discipline which developed speedily in the 1990s.The advantages of the spintronic devices would be nonvolatility, increased data processing speed, decreased electric power consumption, and increased integration densities compared with conventional semiconductor electronic devices. It is envisioned that the merging of electronics, photonics, and magnetics will ultimately lead to new spin-based multifunctional devices such as spin-FET(field effect transistor), spin-LED (light-emitting diode), spin RTD (resonant tunneling device), optical switches operating at terahertz frequency, modulators, encoders, decoders, and quantum bits for quantum computation and communication and give rise to a revolution for information technology. The recent development of spintronics is introduced.
