Experts are convinced that "Spintronics" will prevail

In "spintronics” no electrical charge is transported any more. Instead, the spin of electrons is used. They rotate around their own axis, generating a magnetic moment.  They can take on two orientations, like a rod magnet with a North Pole and South Pole. In turn, these two states can be translated into the binary code with "0" and "1".

Siegfried Selberherr, Professor at the Institute for Microelectronics at the Vienna University of Technology, won a highly endowed advanced grant in 2010 from the European Research Council.  This advanced grant was for the purpose of researching the electron spin for the processing and non-volatile storage of information. His team simulates nanoelectronic effects on the computer, designing new chip components for which patent applications were also submitted.

For Selberherr and his colleague Viktor Sverdlov, the decisive issues have been clarified. “Spintronics” is not some bold vision of the future like the quantum computer but “the next but one technology generation”. Several “spintronic” products are “already commercial available and are also being used in modern systems, for example storage chips for applications where alpha radiation is problematic, like in aircraft”, Selberherr says.

Find the perfect location for your company

Austria stands out due to its long-term reliable and stable conditions. These
features are particularly important for a research-based company such as
Boehringer Ingelheim. Furthermore, Vienna is a city with a good research
infrastructure and a high quality of life, and is thus also an interesting place
for highly qualified employees from Austria and abroad.

Autonomous Driving: Pole Position for Austria

I am a passionate driver, and always have been. As a young person I could hardly wait to finally get my driving license. At the same time, the technology buff in me is looking with great excitement at the revolution currently taking place in the automobile industry. In which direction is this transformation taking the automotive sector? How is our understanding of mobility changing? Are we going to be sitting at the wheel in the future to control the vehicles? Many of the responses to these key questions are coming from Austrian players.
