New storage medium uses physical properties of antiferromagnetic material

22.2.2021

Phys.org

Antiferromagnets hold great promise for exciting applications in data processing, as the orientation of their magnetic moment—in contrast to the ferromagnets used in conventional storage media—cannot be accidentally overwritten by magnetic fields. In recent years, this potential has given rise to the budding research field of antiferromagnetic spintronics, which is the focus of numerous research groups around the world.
