Scientists have developed electrically configured nanochannels that can eliminate unwanted energy waste and promise wave-based computing.

Context

Scientists have developed electrically configured nanochannels that can eliminate unwanted energy waste and promise wave-based computing.

  • It was developed by S. N. Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, an autonomous institute under the Department of Science and Technology (DST), Government of India.

About the Electrically configured Nano-channels

  • These channels are electrically reconfigured parallel nanochannels.
  • Principal: They tune the behaviour of spin wavesinnano-structure elements.

What is Spin Wave?

  • A spin wave is a collective motion of a magnetic moment in magnetically ordered materials.
  • It is a propagating disturbance in the ordering of a magnetic material.
  • These low-lying collective excitations occur in magnetic lattices with continuous symmetry. 
  • The spin wave plays an important role in spintronics as a carrier of spin current, that is, a flow of spin angular momentum. 

What is Spintronics?

  • It is also known as spin electronics, or the study of the intrinsic spin of the electronand its associated magnetic moment.
  • In solid-state devices offer to harness electron spins.
  • Their collective precession can carry information encoded in its amplitude, phase, wavelength, and frequency without any physical motion of particles, eliminating unwanted energy waste and promising wave-based computing.
    • It is done through the anisotropy using the electric field. This is technically called the principles of voltage-controlled magnetic anisotropy.
    • The spin-waves were efficiently transferred through these nanochannels, and this could be switched ‘ON’ and ‘OFF’ and its magnitude altered by a meagre voltage of
