Silicon spintronics closer for cheap continuation of Moore’s law

From EEtimes, Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) scientists will next month describe a technique that would allow spintronics to be inserted into the standard silicon CMOS processes using ferromagnetic materials similar to those already used for magnetic random access memory. Our demonstration showed a 30 percent polarization of the injected electrons, which is not bad considering …
