Latest Spintronics Stories
New research has demonstrated a way to make bismuth electrons and nuclei work together as qubits in a quantum computer.
Researchers successfully managed to increase the graphene conduction electrons' spin-orbit coupling by a factor of 10,000 – enough to allow them to construct a switch that can be controlled via small electric fields.
Studies by Berkeley Lab scientists of electron beam quality in laser plasma accelerators include novel tests for slice-energy spread
University of California, Davis, researchers for the first time have looked inside gallium manganese arsenide, a type of material known as a "dilute magnetic semiconductor" that could open up an entirely new class of faster, smaller devices based on an emerging field known as “spintronics.”
Spintronic technology, in which data is processed on the basis of electron “spin” rather than charge, promises to revolutionize the computing industry with smaller, faster and more energy efficient data storage and processing.
If quantum computers are ever going to perform all those expected feats of code-breaking and number crunching, then their component qubits---tiny ephemeral quantum cells held in a superposition of internal states---will have to be protected from intervention by the outside world.
For the first time since Nobel Prize winner Lev Landau conceived the theoretical existence of quantum levels that determine electron behavior in strong magnetic fields, scientists have directly imaged the phenomenon.
Theoretical Physics made a huge leap from concept to reality yesterday thanks to collaboration between an international team of scientists and researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
A team of researchers at MIT are trying to unlock the mysteries of a promising material for future electronic devices.
Might it one day be possible to transmit electricity from an offshore wind turbine to land-based users without any loss of current?
