Spintronics-Info: the spintronics experts

Spintronics-Info is a news hub and knowledge center born out of keen interest in spintronic technologies.

Spintronics is the new science of computers and memory chips that are based on electron spin rather than (or in addition to) the charge (used in electronics). Spintronics is an exciting field that holds promise to build faster and more efficient computers and other devices.

Will Perovskites be the future of solar cells, batteries, sensors, lasers and displays?

Nov 21, 2015

Spintronics-Info takes great pride in inviting its readers to check out Perovskite-Info.com, our new site focused on perovskite developments, applications and market. We treat it with the same amount of care and deliberation as our other sites, to bring you only the best and most up-to-date picture of the happenings in the field.

Perovskites are a fascinating group of materials that share a similar structure and display a myriad of exciting properties like superconductivity, magnetoresistance and more. These easily synthesized materials are considered the future of solar cells, as their distinctive structure makes them perfect for enabling low-cost, efficient photovoltaics. They are also predicted to play a role in next-gen electric vehicle batteries, sensors, displays, lasers and much more.

Spintronic Nanomemory and Nanosensor Devices

This book is devoted to a range of technological problems concerning the growth of magnetically managed carbon nanotubes (CNT) and the development of spintronic nanomemory devices.

QuantumWise releases a new version of their atomic-scale modeling platform software

Oct 23, 2015

QuantumWise logoQuantumWise announced the 2015 version of their Virtual NanoLab and Atomistix ToolKit atomic-scale modeling platform software. The company says that this new version includes several performance updates and new features - such as electron-phonon interaction, a new Job Manager, and a long range of analysis functions for molecular dynamics simulations. The company also announced that Virtual NanoLab (but not ATK) is now available completely free of charge to academic users.

Specifically for spintronics research, the new version introduces performance and parallelization improvements which can definitely benefit non-collinear and spin-orbit calculations. In addition, spin-orbit coupling have been updated to perform better.

Superconductivity may be key to more efficient spintronic devices

Oct 08, 2015

Researchers from the Lomonosov Moscow State University together with British scientists discovered that superconductivity is able to promote magnetization in certain conditions. Using this effect may lead to faster spintronic devices.
