Scientist wins European award for 'spintronic' microchip design

Abstract:
Professor Russell Cowburn from Imperial College London's Department of Physics picked up the 100,000 award for using nanotechnology to reproduce the key functions of semiconductor electronics in microchips using only the 'spin' of electrons, a quantum property.
