    Superspin research project aims to drive more energy efficient computing

    Scientists at Cambridge University are working on combining two fields of solid state physics research, spintronics and superconductors, in order to develop what they hope could become the foundation for the next generation of datacenter technology — perhaps within the next decade. Read More

  • Magnetic battery discovery may lead to cooler laptops

    Remember the word “spintronics” as you may be hearing more and more about it over the coming months. It’s basically a phenomenon that creates magnetic currents that behave much in the same way that electric currents work, except with out all the heat that electric currents generate. In the computer world, advancements have already been made toward magnetic RAM, which is said… Read More
