Researchers from the Department of Physics at the University of Konstanz have now demonstrated that the lossless electrical transfer of magnetically encoded infor- mation is possible. This finding enables enhanced storage density on integrated circuit chips, and, at the same time, significantly reduces the energy consumption of com - puting centres. The results of this study have been pub- lished in the current issue of the scientific journal Nature Communications. "The combination of superconductivity, which oper- ates without heat generation, with spintronics, transfer- ring magnetic information, does not contradict any fun- damental physical concepts, but just naïve assumptions about the nature of materials," Elke Scheer says. Recent findings suggest that by bringing superconductors into contact with special magnetic materials, electrons with parallel spins can be bound to pairs carrying the super- current over longer distances through magnets. This con- cept may enable novel electronic devices with revolution- ary properties. (Source: Universität Konstanz) Supercomputers Without Wasted Heat
