A robust magnetoelectronic three-terminal device which controls charge currents via the spin-transfer effect was proposed. The lower part of this device consisted of source and drain contacts made from high-coercivity metallic magnets with antiparallel magnetizations. It was found that the device can be fabricated from metallic thin films in a lateral geometry.
