Spin Injection into InN a  Nanowire

Spin injection in semiconductor nanowires for future spin based computing

Jülich, September, 2012: In contrast to conventional electronics, where the electric charge is used for switching purpose, in spin electronics the magnetic property of the electron, its spin, is employed. It is expected that spin-based transistors outclass conventional transistors regarding speed and power consumption. More: Spin injection in semiconductor nanowires for future spin based computing …

Elektronenmikroskopische Aufnahme eines InN Nanodrahtes

Quantum mechanical effects determine nanowire resistance

When the diameter of a semiconductor nanowire shrinks further and further the electronic transport is affected strongly by quantum confinement effects. This was recently found out by researchers at Peter Grünberg Institute (PGI-9), RWTH Aachen University, and University of Southern California, Los Angeles. More: Quantum mechanical effects determine nanowire resistance …
