Silicon-based magnets boost spintronics

Abstract:
A family of silicon-based semiconductors that exhibit magnetic properties has been discovered, paving the way for "spintronic" computer chips that are compatible with existing silicon manufacturing technology. These chips would require less power, as switching the current from on to off could be triggered by a low-power flip in magnetisation, rather than by impeding the current using a voltage, which is how the current technology works.
