Nanomagnets made of graphene for faster and more sustainable information technologies
- 26th November 2019
The EU-funded H2020 project SPRING is granted €3.5 million to develop new graphene-based magnetic components that contribute to the creation of faster and environmentally friendly electronic devices. The international research project is coordinated by CIC nanoGUNE (ES) in partnership with IBM (CH), University of Santiago de Compostela (ES), Technical University of Delft (NL) and University of Oxford (UK), and Donostia International Physics Center (ES).
The SPRING project combines recent scientific breakthroughs from the consortium members to fabricate custom-crafted magnetic graphene nanostructures and test their potential as basic elements in quantum spintronic devices. The targeted long-term vision is the development of an all-graphene – environmentally friendly – platform where spins can be used for transporting, storing and processing information.
