The material for new supercomputers

A team of experts that studies the properties of magnets, has introduced a new data to create more powerful computers.

Modern computers rely on ferromagnetic materials to align the binary “1 and 0”, which processes and stores information. Antiferromagnets are much more powerful, but their natural condition, showing no measurable net magnetization, makes it difficult to use their power.

Laboratory Ph. D. Enrique del Barco and employees of several of the world’s universities, were able to solve this problem by using electrical currents passing through the antiferromagnetic materials at the nanoscale.

The results are innovative because they represent a proof of concept that the antiferromagnetic device can operate at the terahertz level. It not only contains the potential for everything from guidance systems and ending with communication networks, but also brings the possibility of creating devices with simulated brains.
