Brief description The scope for use of spintronic materials in practical applications will be enormous and there will be a huge market for spintronic devices. In fact, giant magnetoresistance spintronic materials are already used in practical applications such as magnetic recording and storage devices. The success of this project will certainly lead to a discovery of novel magnetic semiconductor spintronic materials and better understanding of spin dependent magnetic interactions. It will enhance the international competitiveness and export power of Australian industry in the areas of information technology, quantum computing, magnetic recording and magneto-electronics.
