Researchers propose new designs that rely on an electron’s spin, rather than a circuit’s electrical charge, to process information. One goal: let computers run at normal speed with little or no electricity.
A team of Japanese researchers has proposed a model for the near future of computing based on identifying a 1 from a 0 according to the direction in which an electron spins, rather than where the chip had previously stashed an electrical charge.
