Half-a-loaf method can improve magnetic memories

Chinese scientists have shown that magnetic memory, logic and sensor cells can be made faster and more energy efficient by using an electric, not magnetic, field to flip the magnetization of the sensing layer only about halfway, ...

A new probe for spintronics

The spin Hall effect (SHE) enables us to create spin current in  non-magnetic materials without using ferromagnetic materials. It is a crucial element in the central idea behind spintronics, that of manipulating ...
