巨大磁気抵抗とは導体絶縁体相転移の近傍で磁場により電気抵抗が大幅に変化する現象を指す。これは磁気構造と電気伝導の強い相関に由来し、数十年にわたって盛んに研究されてきた。本稿では、反強磁性絶縁体であるCr$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$が室温においてスピン流についての明確な導体不導体を起こすことを報告する。スピン流透過率はネール温度近傍の14度の間で2桁変化する。このスピン流についての導体不導体転移は磁場によって制御可能であり、定温で最大500%透過率が変化し事実上のスピン流透過不透過切り替えのスイッチとなる。

Colossal magnetoresistance (CMR) refers to a large change in electrical conductivity induced by a magnetic field in the vicinity of a metal-insulator transition. CMR occurs due to a correlation between the magnetic structure and electron conduction and has inspired extensive studies for decades. Here, in the antiferromagnetic insulator Cr$$_{2}$$O$$_{3}$$, we found a sharp transition between conducting and nonconducting states for spin currents at room temperature. The spin-current transmission changes by two orders of magnitude within a narrow temperature window of 14K around the Neel temperature. The spin conductor-nonconductor transition can be modulated by a magnetic field, giving an isothermal change of spin-current transmission of up to 500%, effectively an on-off switch for spin currents.
