Move Over Spintronics, Here Comes Magnonics to the Rescue of Electronics

New type of logic gate promises to completely replace electricity with magnetic spin waves for computation Photo: Spin+X/Applied Physics Letters As we approach the physical limits of electrical currents performing the same logic computations as previous generations of digital electronics, the question has become how do we continue to fabricate logic gates when the devices(…)

Nanostructures Move From Water Purification to Uranium Extraction

Nanostructures Move From Water Purification to Uranium Extraction

Stanford researchers are getting a lot of mileage from nanomaterials by analyzing market needs Photo: Dexter Johnson Last August, we reported on work out of the U.S. Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University in which the nanomaterial molybdenum disulfide was used to kill 99.999 percent of bacteria in water within just(…)
