Spintronics for next generation info tech

Electronics that use minuscule magnetic fields emanating from spinning electrons could be used for faster, smaller electronic devices that use less energy.

‘Miracle Material’ put to the test

U physicist Valy Vardeny builds machines for an emerging field of next-generation electronics, called spintronics.


U researchers find a mineral discovered in Russia in the 1830s holds a key to the next step in ultra-high-speed communications and computing.
