Pairing old technologies with new for next generation electronic devices
August 20, 2014
University College London, UK Government has issued the following news release: One promising approach to developing new technologies is to exploit the electron’s tiny magnetic moment, or ‘spin’. Electrons have two properties – charge and spin – and although current technologies use charge, it is thought that spin-based technologies have the potential to outperform the ‘charge’-based technology of semiconductors for the storage and process of information. In order to utilise electron spins for electronics, or ‘spintronics’, the method of electrically generating and detecting spins needs to be efficient so the devices can process the spin information with low-power consumption. One way to achieve this is by the spin-Hall effect, which is being researched by scientists who are keen to understand the mechanisms of the effect, but also which materials optimise its efficiency. If research into this effect is successful, it will open the door to new technologies.

GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS FROM ALUMINUM, SEMICONDUCTOR INDUSTRIES QUANTIFIED FOR THE 1ST TIME
August 18, 2014
LA JOLLA, Calif., Aug. 18 -- The University of California at San Diego Scripps Institution of Oceanography issued the following press release: Researchers at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego, and colleagues used high-precision measurements of atmospheric gases to find that two potent perfluorocarbon greenhouse gases are emitted to the atmosphere from aluminum and semiconductor manufacturing in far greater quantities than these industries had estimated. An earlier study found that the reported emissions of these perfluorocarbons, which are among the compounds regulated under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), only accounted for half of the emissions observed in the atmosphere during the period 2002-2010. This study distinguishes these emissions by type of industry to further understand the sources of this discrepancy.
