The birth of topological spintronics

The birth of topological spintronics

The discovery of a new material combination that could lead to a more efficient approach to computer memory and logic will be described in the journal Nature on July 24, 2014. The research, led by Penn State University and Cornell University physicists, studies "spin torque" in devices that combine a standard magnetic material with a novel material known as a...

K supercomputer runs largest ever ensemble simulation of global weather

Ensemble forecasting is a key part of weather forecasting today. Computers typically run multiple simulations, called ensembles, using slightly different initial conditions or assumptions, and then analyze them together to try to improve forecasts. Now, using Japan's flagship 10-petaFLOPS K computer, researchers from the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS) have succeeded in running 10,240 parallel simulations of global...

A new multi-bit spin for MRAM storage

A new multi-bit spin for MRAM storage

A France-US research team's new spin on MRAM technology led to a multi-bit storage paradigm that may rival flash memory storage Interest in magnetic random access memory (MRAM) is escalating, thanks to demand for fast, low-cost, nonvolatile, low-consumption, secure memory devices. MRAM, which relies on manipulating the magnetization of materials for data storage rather than electronic charges, boasts all of...

Dartmouth lasers brightens future for quantum supercomputing

Dartmouth scientists and their colleagues have devised a breakthrough laser that uses a single artificial atom to generate and emit particles of light. The laser may play a crucial role in the development of quantum supercomputers, which are predicted to eventually outperform today's most powerful supercomputers. The study appears in the journal Physical Review B. The new laser is the...

Merit, WiscNet partner on new fiber

Merit Network and WiscNet recently lit a new fiber-optic connection between Powers, Michigan; Marinette and Green Bay, Wisconsin; and Chicago, Illinois. The new 10 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) fiber-optic connection replaces two 1 Gbps circuits, providing greater capacity and speed between the Upper Peninsula and Chicago. "By working together WiscNet and Merit are able to increase services to our communities in Northern...

PNNL simulations reveal noble gas cage

PNNL simulations reveal noble gas cage

New material traps gases from nuclear fuel better and uses less energy than currently available options When nuclear fuel gets recycled, the process releases radioactive krypton and xenon gases. Naturally occurring uranium in rock contaminates basements with the related gas radon. A new porous material called CC3 effectively traps these gases, and research appearing July 20 in Nature Materials shows...

Queen Mary's computer scientists decode birdsongs

Scientists from Queen Mary University of London have found a successful way of identifying bird sounds from large audio collections, which could be useful for expert and amateur bird-watchers alike. The analysis used recordings of individual birds and of dawn choruses to identify characteristics of bird sounds. It took advantage of large datasets of sound recordings provided by the British...

Scientists detail Front Range pollution

Scientists detail Front Range pollution

Scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and partner organizations from across the country are launching a major field project on the northern Front Range of Colorado this month to track the origins of summertime ozone, an invisible but harmful pollutant.The researchers will use specially equipped aircraft, networks of ground-based instruments, and sophisticated supercomputer simulations. Results from the...
