Manipulating magnetic field effects in organic semiconductors

Researchers have have found a way to change the magnetoresistance of a thin (100 nm) organic semiconducting material by pairing it with an even thinner layer - a self-assembled monolayer - to alter its characteristics. By demonstrating that this kind of fine tuning is both straightforward and repeatable, the researchers have opened up an unprecedented level of control over materials that hold huge promise for next-generation technologies.

Speeding up data storage by a thousand times with 'spin current'

The storage capacity of hard drives is increasing explosively, but the speed with which all that data can be written has reached its limits. Researchers present a promising new technology which potentially allows data to be stored 1,000 times as fast. The technology, in which ultra-short laser pulses generate a 'spin current', also opens the way to future optical computer chips.
