Spin related mesoscopics

Amnon Aharony

*** Quantum mechanics of nanometer sized devices: using electron wave interference to manipulate electron motion. *** Spintronics: taking advantage of the electron’s magnetic moment (spin), and not only of its charge, to store and read information. Possible applications in quantum computers. *** Multiferroic materials are both magnetic and ferroelectric, and therefore can be manipulated by both electric and magnetic fields.
