Major Breakthrough in Methods of Information Processing in Nanomagnets

Major Breakthrough in Methods of Information Processing in Nanomagnets

Researchers at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) have achieved a major breakthrough in the development of methods of information processing in nanomagnets. Using a new trick, they have been able to induce synchronous motion of the domain walls in a ferromagnetic nanowire. This involved applying a pulsed magnetic field that was perpendicular to the plane of the domain walls. [More]
