Current research is focused on quantum and spin electronics
, areas central to the emerging nanotechnology revolution.
, or spintronics, relies not on electric charge but on another property called spin.
NYSE:A) today announced that the European Physical Society (EPS) has awarded the 2005 Agilent Europhysics Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Condensed Matter Physics to three scientists for their investigations of magnetic semiconductors and spin coherence in the solid state, which has paved the way for the emergence of spin electronics
, or "spintronics.
devices controlled by an electric current (acronym E-Control) - KC-zp.
In the infant field of spin electronics
, or "spintronics," however, a different electron property, known as spin, serves as the coin of the realm.
