Why today's tiny MP3 players will soon look cumbersome

Dr Kar Seng (Vincent) Teng, who is a lecturer in nanoelectronics at Swansea University and is cited in the US Who's Who in Science and Engineering for his work in nanotechnology, is working on enhancing spintronics.

He is researching a so-called nanoneedle, a semiconducting laser tool less than the size of an atom which will be used to 'etch' information into spintronic processors.

An article on nanoneedles by Dr Teng and his colleague at Swansea University's nanotechnology centre, Professor Stephen Wilks, has become one of the most downloaded physics subjects on the internet.
