A generic spin electronic device consists of a spin injection electrode, an interface, a medium in which coherent, polarized injected spins may be manipulated, and another interface beyond which the coherence and direction of the spins may be detected. Although spin injection and detection have been demonstrated by optical techniques (see Chapter 5) in order to produce an all electronic device, the ferromagnetic injector and detector must be materials having high spin polarization and compatibility with the transporting medium.
