The spin of an electron is the elementary microscopic building block of magnets which in current microelectronic technologies are utilized for information storage and retrieval. A new area of technology has been emerging recently that makes use of the natures of electrons, spin, and the fundamental electronic charge. This emerging technology is known as spintronics.
