Multi-purpose Tool for Spintronics Research
In search of energy-efficiency in information technology of the future, scientists at the Peter Grünberg Institute create and research into nanoscale components for spintronics.  They are aided in their task by the “Swiss Army knife” of research tools: using this custom-designed “Nano-Spintronics-Cluster-Tool”, researchers can produce, display and investigate nanocomponents in ultra-high vacuum.  The photograph shows a detail of this specialist tool, which weighs around three tons.
