Move Over Spintronics, Here Comes Magnonics to the Rescue of Electronics

As we approach the physical limits of electrical currents performing the same logic computations as previous generations of digital electronics, the question has become how do we continue to fabricate logic gates when the devices are too small for classical physics? A European collaborative research center called Spin+X has offered a prototype of a device that leverages something called spin waves that may offer a way forward. Spin waves are the synchronous waves of electron spin alignment observed in a magnetic system. If the prototype is any indication, then researcher may have another avenue to explore when traditional electronics reaches its physical limits. Spin+X is funded by the German Research Foundation as well as the European Union funded project InSpin . It's also been supported by the Belgian nanotechnology research institute IMEC . This concentration of expert...
