The National Science Foundation (NSF), through its Division of Electrical and Communications Systems (ECS), Division of Civil and Mechanical Systems (CMS), Division of Chemical and Transport Systems (CTS) and Division of Design, Manufacturing and Industrial Innovation (DMII), of the Directorate for Engineering; and the Office of International Science and Engineering(INT) of the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE), announces an Initiative on Spin Electronics for the 21st Century. This focused initiative seeks high-risk/high-return research on novel concepts in Spin Electronics and its applications. Emphasis will be on enabling technologies critical to the continued growth of Spin Electronics in the next decade to address the scientific issues and technological challenges associated with the underpinnings of quantum and coherent spin electronics, storage and sensing demands of information technology, quantum computing, quantum communications, and revolutionary molecular, chemical and mechanical systems.
