NewsNew magnetic material discovered PinmemberGregory.Gadow4-Mar-14 4:53 
New magnetic material could boost electronics[^]

The material combines thin layers of nickel and vanadium oxide, creating a structure which is surpisingly responsive to heat.

"We can control the magnetism in just a narrow range of temperature - without applying a magnetic field. And in principle we could also control it with voltage or current," said Prof Schuller.

"At low temperatures, the oxide is an insulator. At high temperatures it's a metal. And in between it becomes this strange material," he said.

Although it's too early to say exactly how it will be used, Prof Schuller sees an obvious opportunity in computing memory systems.


The article notes the last time a discovery like this was made, giant magnetoresistance[^] or GMR in 1988. GMR is the technology that allows hard drives to be so small and dense. If this new tech has a similar impact... OMG | :OMG:
