The concept of the spin gapless semiconductor in which both electron and hole can be fully spin polarized is proposed, and its possibility is presented on the basis of first-principles electronic structure calculations. Possible new physics and potential applications in spintronic devices based on the spin gapless semiconductors are discussed.
