Breakthrough in 3D magnetic nanostructures could transform modern-day computing

Posted by in categories: computing, nanotechnology

Scientists have taken a step towards the creation of powerful devices that harness magnetic charge by creating the first ever three-dimensional replica of a material known as a spin-ice.

Spin ice materials are extremely unusual as they possess so-called defects which behave as the single pole of a magnet.

These single pole magnets, also known as magnetic monopoles, do not exist in nature; when every is cut into two it will always create a new magnet with a north and south pole.
