Semiconductor spintronics and its requirements
Requirements of the injection and detection of spin current in a semiconductor are crucial for semiconductor spintronic devices. By reviewing the potentials and the recent success and understanding, we demonstrate the techniques for the injection and detection of spin current in a semiconductor. However, as a particular emphasis is given for the electrical detection, the spin-dependent Hall effects are discussed in more details. The major obstacles and challenges in the development of such devices are also pointed out.
