Paper Abstract

The cascading of logic gates is one of the primary challenges for spintronic computing, as there is a need to dynamically create magnetic fields. Spin-diode logic provides this essential cascading, as the current through each spin-diode is modulated by a magnetic field created by the current through other spin-diodes. This logic family can potentially be applied to any device exhibiting strong positive or negative magnetoresistance, and allows for the creation of circuits with exceptionally high performance. These novel circuit structures provide an opportunity for spintronics to replace CMOS in general-purpose computing.
