Inhalt The utilization of the electronic spin to realize novel electronic devices like magnetic memories or spin-transistors is a rapidly growing research field. The lecture provides an overview of the field and the physical effects and materials used. These include giant magnetoresistance (GMR), tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR), exchange bias, multiferroics, half-metals and many more.
