Ohio Researchers Advance Toward Hybrid Spintronic Computer Chips

Description Ohio State University researchers report they have created the first electronic circuit to merge traditional inorganic semiconductors with organic "spintronics" -- devices that utilize the spin of electrons to read, write and manipulate data. Spintronic logic would theoretically require much less power, and produce much less heat, than current electronics, while enabling computers to turn on instantly without booting up, according to Ezekiel Johnston-Halperin, assistant professor of physics, and his team. The work combined an inorganic semiconductor with a unique plastic material that is under development by fellow Ohio researcher Arthur J. Epstein.
