    Overview

    Concise introduction to the underlying quantum mechanics. Covers numerical tools for simulating spin transport and building blocks of spintronic devices. Makes spintronics approachable with only basics in condensed matter physics.

    Aims and Scope

    Starting from quantum mechanical and condensed matter foundations, this book introduces into the necessary theory behind spin electronics (Spintronics). Equations of spin diffusion, -evolution and -tunelling are provided before an overview is given of simulation of spin transport at the atomic scale. Furthermore, applications are discussed with a focus on elementary spintronics devices such as spin valves, memory cells and hard disk heads.
