Abstract

Moore’s Law in microelectronic technology will break down as the size of individual bits approaches the dimension of atoms; this has been called the end of the silicon road map. For this reason and also for enhancing the multifunctionality of devices, the spin degree of freedom of electron is being investigated for magnetoelectronics applications, i.e., spintronics. Spin-based devices are closely connected with the development of nanotechnology. In this chapter, recent developments of the low-dimensional nanomaterials for spintronics are reviewed. In the first section, the main concepts of spintronics including nanospintronics are briefly discussed. Experimental studies on transition-metal-doped nanowires and nanotubes are summarized in the second section. Extensive theoretical works in this field are reviewed in the third section. Finally, an outlook is given in the last section.
