    Aims and Scope

    As the first comprehensive introduction into the rapidly evolving field of spintronics, this textbook covers ferromagnetism in nano-electrodes, spin injection, spin manipulation, and the practical use of these effects in next-generation electronics. Based on foundations in quantum mechanics and solid state physics this textbook guides the reader to the forefront of research and development in the field, based on repeated lectures given by the author.

    From the content:
    Low-dimensional semiconductor structures
    Magnetism in solids
    Diluted magnetic semiconductors
    Magnetic electrodes
    Spin injection
    Spin transistor
    Spin interference
    Spin Hall effect
    Quantum spin Hall effect
    Topological insulators
    Quantum computation with electron spins
