Almaden Research Center celebrates two decades of whim, wonder

Abstract:
The lab, said Dean, has the most diverse set of specialties compared with the other seven IBM research centers. In the past five years, the Almaden Center has:

• Collaborated with Stanford University to create a spintronics center. Spintronics -- controlling the spin or magnetization of electrons -- could help pave the way for faster, more malleable electronic parts. Commercial application is still years off.

• Created an ``intelligent bricks'' prototype -- a machine that condenses computing and storage ability in a smaller space. Inspired by biology, the Rubik's cube-like machine allows for parts to fail while the whole keeps working. There is no date for when it might be brought to market.

• Built the world's smallest working computer circuit by nudging molecules to cascade into each other, a demonstration of what could be the future of computer technology.
