The main focus of this chapter is the early development of spin injection in metals and related phenomena prior to the year 2000. This includes a review of the origination of the lateral spin valve. More recent related developments are discussed in Chapters 7–9 of Volume 3 of this book. A second focus is the application of the spin-injection technique, using the lateral spin valve geometry, to observe the Datta–Das conductance oscillation in a gated two-dimensional electron system (2DES) structure.
