UCLA To Explore Nano-Magnetics, Spintronics for Non-Volatile Logic

Description The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has awarded an $8.4 million grant to the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science for research in non-volatile logic -- a technology that enables computers and electronic devices to keep their state, even while powered off, then start up and run complex programs instantaneously once powered back on. The research has broad implications across a range of technologies, including portable electronics, remote sensors, unmanned aerial vehicles and high-performance computing.

The research program will explore three technical areas: the behavior of nanoscale magnetic materials; the fabrication and testing of a non-volatile logic circuit; and the development of novel circuits and circuit-design tools. Spintronics will also be a focus area, researchers said.
