Theory could accelerate push for spintronic devices
Rice models help ID materials for advanced electronics, computer memories A new theory by Rice University scientists could boost the growing field of spintronics , devices that depend on the state of an electron as much as the brute electrical force required to push it. Materials theorist Boris Yakobson and graduate student Sunny Gupta at Rice's Brown School of Engineering describe the mechanism behind Rashba splitting , an effect seen in crystal compounds that can influence their electrons' "up" or "down" spin states, analogous to "on" or "off" in common transistors.
