The discovery in 2010, using superconductor / ferromagnet / superconductor Josephson junctions, that it is possible to controllably create triplet Cooper pairs in which the electrons have parallel spins created the field of superconducting spin electronics (superspintronics) . However, even if triplet pairing implies that supercurrents can carry spin, this is not in itself sufficient to create functioning superspintronic...
