Researchers from Ohio State University created a hybrid chip that combines a regular semiconductor with an organic (plastic) spintronic memory device. The plastic spintronics memory device was developed last year in the University, and now it has been incorporated into a circuit based on gallium arsenide.

Spintronic logic could (theoretically) require much less power and generate less hit than current electronics, and a hybrid design could accelerate the commercialization of such devices.
