The Quantum Spin Hall Effect: Theory and Experiment

More review article. This is a rather extensive overview of the quantum spin Hall effect. This effect has similarities to the traditional quantum Hall effect that involves charge transport. Coupled with the review article on spintronics that I highlighted recently, the QSHE shows how spin current is now a rather important factor not just in the possible application in advanced electronics, but also in fundamental understanding.
