Breakthrough for the computer of tomorrow?

Abstract:
For the first time a material now exists that is not only a semiconductor but also exhibits exploitable magnetic properties at room temperature. Researchers at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm have taken the lead in an international race to find the technology of tomorrow. A team consisting of experimentalists from KTH, and theoreticians from KTH and Uppsala University, have found a substance, zinc oxide with a manganese additive, that makes the spin transistor possible at room temperature, and therefore feasible for mass production.
