Summary:
Four researchers at the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) and at Penn State University in University Park, Pa., report in the June 14 issue of Nature experiments that show high-efficiency spin transfer through interfaces between two different semiconductor materials. The paper "Persistent Sourcing of Coherent Spins for Multifunctional Spintronics" also announces the discovery of a new "persistent" mode of spin currents that makes semiconductor reservoirs act, in effect, as "spin batteries."
