Molecules build a bridge to spintronics

Abstract:
The prospect of a new generation of devices that harness the spin of electrons has moved closer following a recent experiment in the US. Min Ouyang and David Awschalom of the University of California at Santa Barbara have transferred electron spins across molecular 'bridges' between quantum dots for the first time. Even better, the pair found that they could transfer the spins most effectively at room temperature.
