The world of spintronics: electrons, spins, computers and telephones

In diesem Max-von-Laue-Kolloquium sprach

Prof. Dr. Albert Fert, Nobelpreis für Physik 2007,

UMP CNRS/Thales, Palaiseau, und Université Paris-Sud, Orsay, Frankreich.


Im Anschluss an das Kolloquium fand ein Stehempfang in der Bibliothek des Fachbereichs Physik
der Freien Universität Berlin statt.

Spintronics is a recently emerged field of research which exploits the influence of the electron spin on electronic transport. It is mainly known for the large increase of the hard disc capacity by read heads based on the “giant magnetoresistance”, but it has also revealed many other interesting effects. After an introduction on the fundamentals of spintronics, I will review some of the most promising directions of today, which includes the study of the spin transfer phenomena, spintronics with semiconductors, spintronics with carbon nanotubes or graphene, neuromorphic devices etc.
