Term (Index) Definition
electron spin, spin  electron spin is an inherent property of electrons; binary in nature (spin s = 1/2 or s = -1/2 only); this property of electron is exploited in the new generation of digital semiconductor devices (spintronics)in which electron's spin rather than its charge control device operation.
spintronics  scientific and technical domain focused on using electron's spin, not its charge, to implement memory effect in electronic devices; idea is based on the inherent binarity of spin states; spins can only be aligned up or down.
