Proposal for quantum spin tomography in ferromagnet-normal conductors

We present a theory for a complete reconstruction of non-local spin correlations in ferromagnet-normal conductors. This quantum spin tomography is based on cross correlation measurements of electric currents into ferromagnetic terminals with controllable magnetization directions. For normal injectors, non-local spin correlations are universal and strong. The correlations are suppressed by spin-flip scattering and, for ferromagnetic injectors, by increasing injector polarization.
