Latest Spin Stories
As electrons move past atoms in a solid, their charge distorts the nearby lattice and can create a wave. Reciprocally
Bochum's physicists led by Prof. Dr. Hartmut Zabel have demonstrated the spin pumping effect in magnetic layers for the first time experimentally.
By combining two frontier technologies, spintronics and straintronics, a team of researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University has devised perhaps the world's most miserly integrated circuit.
Physicists at Hamburg and Kiel University and the Forschungszentrum JÃ¼lich have found for the first time a regular lattice of magnetic skyrmions â€“ cycloidal vortex spin structures of exceptional stability â€“ on a surface.
Physicists at Forschungszentrum JÃ¼lich and the universities of Kiel and Hamburg are the first to discover a regular lattice of stable magnetic skyrmions â€“ radial spiral structures made up of atomic-scale spins â€“ on a surface instead of in bulk materials.
A violation of one of the oldest empirical laws of physics has been observed by scientists at the University of Bristol.
Scientists have taken one step closer to the next generation of computers.
At the smallest scales, magnetism may not work quite the way scientists expected, according to a recent paper in Physical Review Letters by Rafal Oszwaldowski and Igor Zutic of the University at Buffalo and Andre Petukhov of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
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...
