We propose that the polarization of the moving magnetic vortex core can be detected by the electro- and spin-motive forces acting on the spin-polarized conduction electrons. With parameters appropriate to Permalloy, we have simulated the dynamics of a magnetic vortex core resulting from an applied oscillating magnetic field. We show that the polarization of the moving core can be detected by a simple electrical measurement.
