Spintronics (spin transport electronics), also known as magnetoelectronics, is an emerging technology exploiting both the intrinsic spin of the electron and its associated magnetic moment, in addition to its fundamental electronic charge, in solid-state devices. Examples of applications are:
Read heads of modern hard drives. They are based on the giant magnetoresistance effect
Non-volatile spin-logic devices to enable scaling beyond the year 2025 are being studied.
