Handbook of Spintronic Semiconductors

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the 'Handbook of Spintronic Semiconductors' report to their offering.

This book offers recent progress in the spintronic research of semiconductors. The authors, active in this field, provide both theoretical and experimental aspects of the current issues relating to the aforesaid field and the potential applications of diluted magnetic semiconductors. An excellent reference in the spin-related semiconductor physics and electronics for graduate students and researchers.

Emeritus Prof Yasuo Oka IMRAM,

Tohoku University, Japan

Spintronics explores the spin degree of freedom of the electron to sense, store, process and transfer information in addition to the electron charge. Semiconductor spintronics promises to combine new spin enabling functionality with the present-day microelectronics and optoelectronics. It also opens the door to new generation of devices, and to the merging of electronics, photonics and magnetics. The success of spintronics relies on our ability to create and control spins. Among many obstacles, generation of electron spin polarization and coherence at room temperature is one of the most important as well as the most challenging issues, which has attracted intense research efforts during recent years. Significant progresses have been made both theoretically and experimentally, while many issues remain unresolved.

This book provides an in-depth review of the rapidly developing field of spintronic semiconductors. It covers a broad range of topics, including growth and basic physical properties of diluted magnetic semiconductors based on II-VI, III-V and IV semiconductors, recent developments in theory and experimental techniques and potential device applications; its aim is to provide postgraduate students, researchers and engineers a comprehensive overview of our present knowledge and future perspectives of spintronic semiconductors.

Readership: Advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level students in semiconductor physics and technology, spintronics; researchers and engineers in spintronics, semiconductor physics and technology, magnetism.
