We investigate spin conductance in zigzag graphene nanoribbons and propose a spin injection method based only on graphene. Combining density functional theory with tight-binding transport calculations, we find that nanoribbons with asymmetrically shaped edges show a non-zero spin conductance and can be used for spin injection. Furthermore, nanoribbons with rough edges exhibit mesoscopic spin ...
