Spintronics Gets a Boost Through Measuring and Controlling Spin Voltage

"Researchers at Harvard University have taken an important step in the realization of 'spintronic' devices by developing a technique for both measuring and controlling the spin voltage of electrons, also known as their spin chemical potential. This spin voltage characterizes the tendency of electron spins to diffuse through a material. Whereas in a conducting material electrons can physically move from point A to point B (an electric current), with spin voltage the spin of an electron can be transferred to a neighboring electron. This communication ..." http://spectrum.ieee.org/nanoclast/semiconductors/nanotechnology/spintronics-gets-a-boost-through-measuring-and-controlling-spin-voltage
