Can Magnonic Devices Replace Electronics?

Electronic devices including transistors are getting smaller which can limit its conventional performance. While the devices based on the magnonic currents can transform the industry, a better understanding is imperative for better controlling. The team at the University of California, Riverside took an important step toward the development of practical magnonic devices. A group led by Alexander Balandin developed a chip, which could develop a magnonic current and flow, or

Heat to Generate Electrical Current

Heat is generated by a lot of electronic devices every single day and that generated heat is wasted in most of the cases. Physicists at Bielfeld University, Germany have come up with a way to make use of the heat that is generated everyday by many of the electronic devices. Magnetic signals termed as ‘spin currents’, are generated through the application of heat. It is hoped that in near future,

3D Nano-magnets to Process Information Faster in Electronic Devices

Electronic devices may have evolved dramatically over the years, yet the manner in which they store and transmit information (bits) still remains the same since 1960’s – in two dimensional (2D) circuits. This, however, is set to change soon as well, since University of Cambridge researchers have come up with a magnetic circuit on nano-scale that enables information to be transmitted through three dimensions (3D) space. The new discovery could
