Futurologists and high-tech gurus anticipate that the next big thing in the electronics industry will be spintronics, devices based on electron spin — smaller, faster, and more versatile than today's devices, which are based on electron charge.
Before the spintronic revolution can begin, however, scientists will need a much better understanding of spin currents created by the motion of electrons through a semiconductor. An important step in this direction has been taken by a team of scientists at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California at Berkeley, led by Joe Orenstein, a physicist who holds a joint appointment with Berkeley Lab's Materials Sciences Division and UC Berkeley's Physics Department.
