Individual atoms - First images captured of atomic spin

Though scientists argue that the emerging technology of spintronics may trump conventional electronics for building the next generation of faster, smaller, more efficient computers and high-tech devices, no one has actually seen the spin—a quantum mechanical property of electrons—in individual atoms until now.

Unlike electronic devices, which give off heat, spintronic-based devices are expected to experience less power dissipation.

“The combination of atom manipulation and spin sensitivity gives a new perspective of constructing atomic-scale structures and investigating their magnetic properties,” Kubetzka said.

I had mentioned molecular computers before. My first computer was an 8088 at 7 mega Hz. Now we have supercomputers with hundreds of cores.

Ain't science grand?
