Ferromagnetism in magnetic III-V semiconductors that can be integrated epitaxially into nonmagnetic heterostructures allows us to explore spin-dependent phenomena previously not accessible in semiconductors. Here, I review the properties of ferromagnetic III-V's and their heterostructures. Prospect of a new class of semiconductor electronics that utilizes both the charge and spin degrees of freedom (semiconductor spintronics) is also discussed.
