A Silicon Spintronic Memory That Lasts…could lead to hackproof Quantum Computing

Stores spin for minutes instead of microseconds   Photo: Dane R. McCamey 10 January 2011—In what could prove to be a big development in the nascent field of spintronics, scientists have succeeded in storing information for almost 2 minutes using a magnetic property of phosphorus nuclei embedded in silicon. For this property, called spin, 2 […]
