A Novel Way of Transferring Magnetic Information Discovered

A team led by researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) has achieved a major breakthrough in magnetic interaction. By adding a special insulator, they make electrons “twirl” their neighboring “dance partners” to transfer magnetic information over a longer range between two thin layers of magnetic materials. This novel technique enables magnetic information to make their way from one magnetic layer to another, synonymous to the encoding and transmission of data …[more]

Scientists achieve major breakthrough in thin-film magnetism

Singapore, 14 August 2015 – Magnetism in nanoscale layers only a few tens of atoms thick is one of the foundations of the big data revolution – for example, all the information we download from the internet is stored magnetically on hard disks in server farms dotted across the World. Recent work by a team of scientists working in Singapore, The Netherlands, USA and Ireland, published on 13 August 2015 in the prestigious journal, Science -Science 349, 716 (2015)-, has uncovered a new twist to the story of thin-film magnetism…[more]
