Important progress for spintronics
Linkoping Sweden (SPX) Nov 23, 2012
A fundamental cornerstone for spintronics that has been missing up until now has been constructed by a team of physicists at Linkoping University in Sweden. It's the world's first spin amplifier that can be used at room temperature. Great hopes have been placed on spintronics as the next big paradigm shift in the field of electronics. Spintronics combines microelectronics, which is built on the charge of electrons, with the magnetism that originates in the electrons' spin. This lays the foundation ... read more
