Spin-transport theory of magnetically inhomogeneous systems

Shufeng Zhang, Peter M. Levy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We review the key ingredients of our current theoretical formulation of spin-dependent transport in magnetic layered and granular solids. The meaning of effective spin-dependent internal electric field is given, and the shortcomings of current approaches are signaled. The essential features of realistic model calculations of conduction in magnetically inhomogeneous systems are discussed.
