Scientist Honored for 'Spintronic' Microchips

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
LONDON, Sept. 12, 2006 -- A scientist who has shown that magnetic microchips can store hundreds of gigabytes of information has won a European science-to-business award for both his work and his plan to commercialize the technology. The "spintronic" microchips, which work by using the spin of electrons -- as opposed to the charge of electrons which forms the basis of traditional electronics -- will be able to store massive amounts of data on a tiny chip. Currently, storing such levels of data requires the use of a hard disk, which can be bulky and which needs access to a large battery power source. Spintronic...Read full article
