Fluid Spintronics

Prijs: NWOViciWetenschappelijk

Omschrijving

Spin
The research into fluid elektronics focusses on ultrapure conductors, in which electrons behave as a viscous fluid. This allows for a much more efficient exchange of information in electronical and magnetic systems (such as computers). Additonally, ultrapure conductors work at room temperatures, making them much more energy-efficient than super conductors.
Duine will use part of the grant to investigate new materials in which electrons transmit their spin property, rather than their charge. Spin is a magnetic property of fundamental particles that can be imagined as a built-in compass needle.
Black hole
The research builds on an analogy between black holes and magnetic systems, that was previously discovered by Duine. In theory, this will make it possible to amplify spin signals and generate quantum entanglement. Quantum entanglement is a key ingredient of super fast quantum computers.
