Title: SPINTRONICS: UNDERSTANDING THIS NEW SPIN ON ELECTRONICS WITHOUT GETTING DIZZY
Participants: Kevin Roche
Precis: Spintronics -- technology that harnesses electron spin as
well as its charge -- has already dramatically changed the
world we live and work in today. IBM Almaden Research
Center scientist Kevin Roche will introduce you to this
emerging technology: what spin is, what it does and how we
are beginning to harness it, as well as a virtual tour of
his laboratory and the giant robots they use to study these
nano-engineered materials. He also promises to do it in
terms that won't make your head spin.
