  title={Material Targets for Scaling All Spin Logic},
  author={S. Manipatruni and D. Nikonov and I. Young},
All-spin logic devices are promising candidates to augment and complement beyond-CMOS integrated circuit computing due to non-volatility, ultra-low operating voltages, higher logical efficiency, and high density integration. However, the path to reach lower energy-delay product performance compared to CMOS transistors currently is not clear. We show that scaling and engineering the nanoscale magnetic materials and interfaces is the key to realizing spin logic devices that can surpass energy… Expand
