  • Three-Dimensional Nanomagnets for the computer of tomorrow

    SINC | 15 November 2017 08:47

    Since the late 60´s electronic devices have stored and transmitted information (bits) in two-dimensional circuits. Now, researchers at the University of Cambridge have been able to break this barrier by creating a nanoscale magnetic circuit capable of moving information along the three dimensions of space. This breakthrough could lead to an important increase in storage and processing capacitie...

  • The ancient rotation of the Iberian Peninsula left a magnetic trace

    SINC | 02 March 2016 08:00

    The volcanic rock found in the south of León experienced a rotation of almost 60º 300 million years ago, an example of what could have occurred across the entire Iberian Peninsula when, in that moment, it was still being formed. This fact is demonstrated by the magnetic signals of its minerals, currently being analysed by researchers from the universities of Salamanca and Utrecht (The Neth...

  • Lead islands in a sea of graphene magnetise the material of the future

    SINC | 15 December 2014 17:00

    Researchers in Spain have discovered that if lead atoms are intercalated on a graphene sheet, a powerful magnetic field is generated by the interaction of the electrons’ spin with their orbital movement. This property could have implications in spintronics, an emerging technology promoted by the European Union to create advanced computational systems.

  • Valencian scientists describe a hybrid laminate material with magnetic and photoactive properties

    UV | 28 July 2014 11:16

    A research conducted by the Institute for Molecular Science of the Universitat de València and of the Institute for Chemical Technology of the Universitat Politècnica de València and the Spanish National Research Council, confirms for the first time the possibility of modulating the magnetic properties of an inorganic material through organic photoactive molecules activated by light.
