Description

Century-long studies of spin-rotation coupling will be reviewed, starting with Einstein - de Haas and Barnett experiments, and ending with modern-time experiments on torsional nano-oscillators and quantum Einstein – de Haas effect in magnetic molecules chemisorbed on surfaces and grafted on carbon nanotubes. Open questions related to microscopic mechanisms of the conservation of the total angular momentum in solids will be discussed.
