    I am interested in learning about spintronics. Anybody around who is familiar this field?

    I was just looking over the Atomic, Solid State, Comp. Physics forum where ZapperZ was replying to a question about growing crystal lattices and said "the lattice mismatch is actually desirable because it produces a strain in the film that breaks the degeneracy of the crystal, allowing for the production of spin-polarized photoelectrons.".
    So I did a little googling on spin-polarized photoelectrons production and found out that spintronics is an application for these photoelectrons. You might want to ask ZapperZ.

    I'll move this thread from EE over to that forum so that Zz sees it. Thanks for the pointer, dlgoff.

    please see the original paper by Rashba!
    Wrinkler write a book about spin-orbit coupling, published by Springer
    you can consult it.
