Abstract

For the full implementation of spintronic circuits, it is necessary to transmit spin information from one device to another. Electrons in semiconductors often suffer from high spin relaxation rates, making electrical transport of spin information highly inefficient. Here, we propose optical transport of spin information as an alternative. We demonstrate that the spin information associated with electrons injected from and Fe layers into the quantum wells of spin light emitting diodes (spin-LEDs) can be transported optically in the form of circularly polarized light and deciphered electrically via the magnetic field dependence of the photocurrent in a distant detector spin-LED.
