Conventional electronics devices use the electron charge to carry information. In contrast, the emerging field of spintronics relies on the electron spin. Advanced spintronics devices will require the generation and manipulation of a spin current, but present methods for achieving such a current are cumbersome and inefficient, requiring the use of external magnetic fields and ferromagnets. In his Perspective, Sharma reviews a method for generating spin currents that can overcome these… Expand
Direct demonstration of decoupling of spin and charge currents in nanostructures.
TLDR
A novel measurement is reported in which a nonequilibrium spin population is created by a pointlike injection of current from a ferromagnet across a tunnel barrier into a one-dimensional spin channel and detected differentially by a pair of ferromagnetic electrodes placed symmetrically about the injection point.

TLDR
The generation of a magneto-motive force and realization of magnetic circuits using low-dimensional Heisenberg antiferromagnets are predicted and it is claimed that what the experiments in spintronics attempt to do is trying to treat the magnetic degrees of freedoms on the same footing as the electronic ones.
