Latest Spintronics Stories
Tomorrow's nonvolatile memory devices â€“ computer memory that can retain stored information even when not powered â€“ will profoundly change electronics, and Cornell University researchers have discovered a new way of measuring and optimizing their performance.
Magnetic Random Access Memories (MRAM) are the most important new modules on the market of computer storage devices.
Japanese researchers have been immersing iron-based compounds in hot alcoholic beverages such as red wine, sake and shochu to induce superconductivity.
Black holes are some of the heaviest objects in the universe. Electrons are some of the lightest.
Physicists at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI), a collaboration of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland-College Park, have for the first time caused a gas of atoms to exhibit an important quantum phenomenon known as spin-orbit coupling.
A researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has invented a method of making high-temperature superconducting (HTS) cables that are thinner and more flexible than demonstration HTS cables now installed in the electric power grid while carrying the same or more current.
Illinois researchers have documented the first observations of some unusual physics when two prominent electric materials are connected: superconductors and graphene.
Chemical compounds called manganites have been studied for many years since the discovery of colossal magnetoresistance, a property that promises important applications in the fields of magnetic sensors, magnetic random access memories and spintronic devices.
A team of physicists has taken a big step toward the development of useful graphene spintronic devices.
In a development that may revolutionize handheld electronics, flat-panel displays, touch panels, electronic ink, and solar cells, as well as drastically reduce their manufacturing costs, physicists in Iran have created a spintronic device based on "armchair" graphene nanoribbons.
