The University of California, Riverside has received a $1.85 million National Science Foundation grant to develop a new way of electron-spin-based computing beyond the scope of conventional silicon electronics. For spin-based computing, data is held in the spin state of the electron. This involves developing a new type of building-block device known as a magnetologic gate that will serve as the engine for this technology similar to the role of the transistor in conventional electronics. For the logic operations, electrons move through the graphene and use its spin state to compare the information held in the individual magnetic electrodes.
