Single-Electron Shuttle Based on Electron Spin
Journal article, 2014

A nanoelectromechanical device based on magnetic exchange forces and electron spin flips induced by a weak external magnetic field is suggested. It is shown that this device can operate as a new type of single-electron "shuttle" in the Coulomb blockade regime of electron transport.
