The goal: Room-temperature spintronic computers University of Utah researchers built "spintronic" transistors and used them to align the magnetic "spins" of electrons for a record period of time in silicon chips at room temperature. The study is a step toward computers, phones and other spintronic devices that are faster and use less energy than their electronic counterparts. "Electronic devices mostly use the charge of the electrons - a negative charge that is moving," says Ashutosh Tiwari,...
