Graphene is a nearly ideal spintronic interconnect material due to its low spin-orbit coupling and ultra-high mobility, which lead to spin diffusion lengths on the order of 10's of microns. Graphene can also act as a tunable spin channel through electrostatic gating, a capability not found in metallic spin channels. However, despite its promising intrinsic properties, the usefulness of graphene for practical applications in spintronic devices is unclear. In this presentation, I will provide an overview of prior work on graphene spintronics and describe the current status of experimental work. Finally, I will provide an outlook for future directions with an emphasis on possible applications of graphene to enable novel spintronic devices.
