Insulator Spintronics (InSpin)
Date du début: 1 mars 2014, Date de fin: 28 févr. 2017 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

InSpin will develop revolutionary nano-scale insulator spintronics that can replace or be integrated with conventional electronics and function at ambient temperatures. The innovation lies in the use of spin currents that in magnetic insulators are decoupled from charge currents and propagate with extremely low power dissipation. InSpin's objectives are to provide a disruptive technology that is spin-based, low-power and ultra-low-noise, leading to superior oscillators, logics, and random access memory compared to those based on charge-based electronics. Ultimately, electrical current-driven magnon Bose-Einstein condensation and the associated super spin-currents enable dissipationless spintronics at room temperature. The strong reduction or even the complete absence of power dissipation in (super) insulator spintronics implies loss-less transfer of spin signals that circumvents the energy dissipation problem, which threatens to end Moore's Law in information and communication technology. InSpin's final deliverable is to fabricate the first functional spin wave bus with signal input and detection and to use this bus to realize a logic majority gate as the key component for future insulator spintronics.
