"Optically Controlled Spin Logic" Project Begins

9 December 2014

The "optically controlled spin logic" project has commenced at the Peter Grünberg Institute.

In this project, scientists from PGI-1, 6 und 7 are working in partnership with the University of Dusseldorf on the basic principles for a novel nanoelectronic logic component, which processes information at room temperature using spin rather than electric charge and can be controlled by magnetic fields and light pulses. This is a particularly energy-efficient type of information processing.
