Bit data goes anti-skyrmions

Today's world, rapidly changing because of "big data", is encapsulated in trillions of tiny magnetic objects - magnetic bits - each of which stores one bit of data in magnetic disk drives. A group of scientists from the Max ...

Realizing quantum bits

In computers of the future, information might be stored in the form of quantum bits. But how can a quantum bit be realised?

Lasers could make hard drives faster, simpler and higher density

(Phys.org) —Researchers at the University of California, San Diego have discovered that for a wide range of ferromagnetic materials the direction of magnetization can be completely controlled by polarized light without ...

Manipulating magnetic forces with light

The magnetic forces in magnetic materials like iron can be rapidly manipulated with light. Rubicon Researcher Johan Mentink, together with Martin Eckstein from the University of Hamburg CFEL/MPSD, has theoretically demonstrated ...
