The electromotive force (e.m.f.) predicted by Faraday’s law reflects the forces acting on the charge, –e, of an electron moving through a device or circuit, and is proportional to the time derivative of the magnetic field. This conventional e.m.f. is usually absent for stationary circuits and static magnetic fields. There are also forces that act on the spin of an electron; it has been recently predicted that, for circuits that are in part composed of ferromagnetic materials, there arises an e… 
Spinmotive force due to motion of magnetic bubble arrays driven by magnetic field gradient
It is shown by deriving expressions for the electric voltages that the present system offers a direct measure of phenomenological parameter β that describes non-adiabaticity in the current induced magnetization dynamics.
The electromotive force of MnAs nanoparticles
It is pointed out that the electrical energy output measured by Hai et al. was more than 1,000 times greater than the maximum amount of magnetic energy that could be induced in their MnAs nanoparticles by the applied magnetic field, therefore the induced magnetic energy cannot be the source for the observed electromotive force.
Emergent electrodynamics of skyrmions in a chiral magnet
When an electron moves in a smoothly varying non-collinear magnetic structure, its spin orientation adapts constantly, thereby inducing forces that act both on the magnetic structure and on the
Spin-motive force due to a gyrating magnetic vortex.
A good agreement is found between the good agreement between the experimental results, theory and micromagnetic simulations, which taken as a whole provide strong evidence in favour of a spin-motive force.

The appearance of spintronics of polymeric materials is an important step in the development of spintronics. In the scope of this trend, it seems important to consider the possibilities of the
Electric manipulation of domain walls in magnetic Weyl semimetals via the axial anomaly
We show how the axial (chiral) anomaly induces a spin torque on the magnetization in magnetic Weyl semimetals. The anomaly produces an imbalance in leftand right-handed chirality carriers when
Real-time analysis of the spinmotive force due to domain wall motion
Using numerical simulations, we study the spinmotive force induced by domain wall motion in a high magnetic field region far above the Walker breakdown field. We find that the DC component of the

A brief review of field- and current-driven domain-wall motion
A brief review of field- and recently developed current-driven domain-wall motion in a ferromagnetic nanowire is presented from a theoretical point of view. In the first part, the wall motion driven


Currents induced by domain wall motion in thin ferromagnetic wires
Historically the role of eddy currents in the motion of Bloch walls has been extensively studied. In contrast the direct interaction of currents with such a moving wall has received very little
Giant room-temperature magnetoresistance in single-crystal Fe/MgO/Fe magnetic tunnel junctions
A giant MR ratio up to 180% at room temperature in single-crystal Fe/MgO/Fe MTJs is reported, indicating that coherency of wave functions is conserved across the tunnel barrier.
Generalization of Faraday's Law to include nonconservative spin forces.
The usual Faraday's Law E=-dPhi/dt determines an electromotive force E which accounts only for forces resulting from the charge of electrons. In ferromagnetic materials, in general, there exist

Sputter-deposited polycrystalline MTJs grown on an amorphous underlayer, but with highly oriented MgO tunnel barriers and CoFe electrodes, exhibit TMR values of up to ∼220% at room temperature and ∼300% at low temperatures, which will accelerate the development of new families of spintronic devices.
