A magneto-optical sensor, the luminescent spin-valve transistor, is demonstrated, showing direct control of a light source using a magnetic field. By manipulating the relative magnetizations of thin-film ferromagnets in the transistor’s base, the luminescence intensity is modulated by approximately 200%. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
