The spin field-effect transistor developed by Datta and Das opens access to spin information processing. The integration of the spin degree of freedom in charge based electronic devices has revolutionized both sensing and memory capability in microelectronics. Since the conventional electronics facing many problems, spin based devices arise as the solution for the next generation of integrated circuit. Spintronics makes many advantages to the functionality of logical operation and information processing compared with traditional semiconductors. Further development in spintronic devices requires electrical manipulation of spin current for logic operations. A semiconductor channel contacted with two ferromagnetic electrodes constitute a spin field effect transistor (Spin-FET) which is a foundation device in spintronics. Spin Field Effect the spin transistor comes about as a result of research on the ability of electrons to naturally exhibit one of two states of spin: known as "spin up" and "spin down". Thus, spin transistors operate on electron spin as embodying a two-state quantum system. Unlike traditional transistors, which operates on an electric current, spin-FET operate on electrons on a more fundamental level; it is essentially the application of electrons set in particular states of spin to store information. Thus this spin of an electron is semi-permanent and can be used as means of creating cost-effective non-volatile solid state storage that does not require the constant application of current to sustain. It is one of the technologies being explored for Magnetic Random Access Memory (MRAM).The spin field-effect transistor are characterized by its faster speed, more efficient, small size, less heat generation made it more popular than traditional transistors.
