Scientists reveal the dominant role of quenched disorder on complex oxide nanowires

At nanometer length scale, novel phenomena are expected to emerge. Compared to the traditional semiconductors used in industrial business, does complex oxides show any interesting and not-before-seen properties at nanometer length scale? A new study has shown the unique physical properties of manganite nanowires known as quenched disorder and its potential applications.

New method for using spin waves in magnetic materials

In order to miniaturize individual components of mobile phones or computers, for example, magnetic waves are currently regarded as promising alternatives to conventional data transmission functioning by means of electric currents. The physical basis for this is the spin of electrons in magnetic materials, which can be simplified as a rotation of electrons around their own axis. Physicists have developed a new approach that makes it easier to use spin waves.

A 'simulation booster' for nanoelectronics

Researchers have developed a method that can simulate nanoelectronics devices and their properties realistically, quickly and efficiently. This offers a ray of hope for the industry and data centre operators alike, both of which are struggling with the (over)heating that comes with increasingly small and powerful transistors.

Magnetic wave flows under better control from now on

Even faster processors with even smaller dimensions? Wherever neither electronics nor spintronics can cope with performance or miniaturization, magnonics comes to the rescue. But before that happens, scientists must learn how to accurately simulate the flow of magnetic waves through magnonic crystals.
