Diamonds Help Speed Up Spintronics
2014-03-26 04:49:49

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers from Ohio State University have demonstrated for the first time that information can flow through a diamond wire. Scientists are working to develop “spintronics” in order to make computers simultaneously faster and more powerful. Spin could be used to help transmit data in computer circuits, and the latest research shows just how viable of an option diamonds could be. The team wrote in the journal Nature...

University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee Research finds a new way to control topological insulators Research into a recently discovered class of materials shows they have the necessary characteristics to develop ultra-energy efficient electronics. Topological insulators (TI) are three-dimensional materials that conduct electricity on their surfaces, while the interior insulates. Their surfaces are particularly unique because the motion of the electrons is "protected" by symmetry, meaning...

Researchers Demonstrate New Principle For Magnetic Recording
2014-03-04 11:08:33

Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz The research group of Professor Jairo Sinova at the Institute of Physics at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), in collaboration with researchers from Prague, Cambridge, and Nottingham, have predicted and discovered a new physical phenomenon that allows to manipulate the state of a magnet by electric signals. Current technologies for writing, storing, and reading information are either charge-based or spin-based. Semiconductor flash or random...

Advances in technology for computation and information storage always require to make the systems smaller and faster. The limits of miniaturization are those set by nature: Materials are composed by specific units, the atoms, that cannot be further divided. The question arising is: Can we still codify information at the atomic scale? And the answer is yes, we can! but one needs to manipulate a property of the atoms, individually, and keep them in that state there for sufficiently long time to...

Single-atom Bit Forms Smallest Memory In The World
2013-11-18 12:09:44

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology Control of the Magnetic Moment of Single Atoms Is the Key to Compact Data Memories and Quantum Computers One atom equals one bit: According to this design principle, we would like to construct magnetic data memories in the future. Presently, a compound of several million atoms is needed to stabilize a magnetic bit in a way that hard disk data are secure for several years. However, researchers from KIT have just made a big step towards a single-atom...

Quantum World Record Crushed
2013-11-14 15:37:00

University of Oxford A normally fragile quantum state has been shown to survive at room temperature for a world record 39 minutes, overcoming a key barrier towards building ultrafast quantum computers. An international team including Stephanie Simmons of Oxford University, UK, report in this week's Science a test performed by Mike Thewalt of Simon Fraser University, Canada, and colleagues. In conventional computers data is stored as a string of 1s and 0s. In the experiment quantum bits...

Magnetic Charge Crystals Imaged In Artificial Spin Ice Material
2013-08-28 14:04:18

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign A team of scientists, led by University of Illinois physicist Peter Schiffer, has reported direct visualization of magnetic charge crystallization in an artificial spin ice material, a first in the study of a relatively new class of frustrated artificial magnetic materials-by-design known as “Artificial Spin Ice.” These charges are analogs to electrical charges with possible applications in magnetic memories and devices. The research team's...

A gyroscope uses the principles of conservation and angular momentum to measure and maintain orientation. The mechanical gyroscope is a spinning wheel or disk whose axle is free to take any orientation. The gyroscope's high rate of spin allows for large angular momentum which makes the orientation changes much more responsive to a given external torque. There is also the electronic, microchip-packaged MEMS gyroscope, solid state ring laser and fiber optic gyroscope, as well as the extremely...
