+ - Spintronics in silcon

Submitted by
TeutonTom writes "Scientific American has an article on the first use of spintronics in silicon. By injecting the electrons into the silicon so that the spins are aligned chips can be produced that require a fraction of the power of current chips. The reduction in power consumption also produces less waste heat."

We will have solar energy as soon as the utility companies solve one technical problem -- how to run a sunbeam through a meter.
