Latest Discovery by UNL Researchers Points to Evolving Technology

(NET Radio) - It would be fair to say UNL assistant professor, physicist and researcher Christian Binek has spent a lot of time in his lab. For the past several years, he has worked almost exclusively in the field of something called "spintronics."

"Roughly speaking," Binek said, "it is the attempt to use a property of the electrons, which is not used so far in conventional electronic circuitry, and that is the spin of an electron."
