Today's digital world generates vast amounts of data every second. Hence, there is a need for memory chips that can store more data in less space, as well as the ability to read and write that data faster while using less energy.
Why is studying spin properties of one-dimensional quantum nanowires important
The Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) reports that a team of researchers under Dr Kyoung-Whan Kim from the Center for Spintronics has come up with a new principle for spin memory devices—regarded as the next-generation memory devices.
At the University of Basel, physicists have designed a compact instrument capable of detecting very small magnetic fields.
Some memory devices where information from smartphones and computers is stored are based on a very precise control of the magnetic properties, at nanoscopic scale.
Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, or Chardonnay - when you reach for your favourite white, it's the clean, clear sparkle that first catches your eye.
Graphene is a diamagnetic material, this is, unable of becoming magnetic. However, a triangular piece of graphene is predicted to be magnetic.
The rapid progression of technology has led to a huge increase in energy usage to process the massive troves of data generated by devices. But researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have found a way to make the new generation of smart computers more energy efficient.
A new technique for producing and controlling spin waves in nanostructured magnetic materials has been described in a new study that featured as a cover article in the Advanced Materials journal describes.
At the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), scientists have successfully captured a short “3D film” of magnetic processes on the nanometer level for the first time.
