Some superconductors can also carry currents of ‘spin’

Some superconductors can also carry currents of ‘spin’

We have shown that certain superconductors – materials that carry electrical current with zero resistance at very low temperatures – can also carry currents of ‘spin’. The successful combination of superconductivity and spin could lead to a revolution in high-performance computing, by dramatically reducing energy consumption.

The Electron Manifesto: transforming high performance computing with 'spintronics'

Electron ‘spin’ could hold the key to managing the world’s growing data demands without consuming huge amounts of energy. Now, researchers have shown that energy-efficient superconductors can power devices designed to achieve this. What once seemed an impossible marriage of superconductivity and spin may be about to transform high performance computing.

Spintronics: making computers faster

Smaller, faster, cheaper - that was the trend in computing for the past 50 years. As microprocessor technology is hitting the limits of what’s physically possible, some researchers are exploring whether a new technology, ‘spintronics’, may be the way forward.
