Latest Spintronics Stories
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?
Miniaturization is the way of the world, with each successive round of circuitry requiring less space and energy to perform the same tasks.
A team of researchers at RIKEN and the University of Tokyo has demonstrated a new material that promises to eliminate loss in electrical power transmission.
