Racetrack memory devices are novel spintronic memory-storage devices that have been demonstrated to have highly attractive properties, including high speed and density, and non-volatility. A novel feature of these devices is that the digital data is encoded as nanoscopic magnetic domain walls that are shifted to and thro along magnetic “racetracks” using current pulses. Recently, a team of scientists at the Max-Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle (Saale) have successfully realized the ionitronic manipulation of such current-induced domain wall motion in synthetic antiferromagnetic racetrack devices. The results have been published in the journal “Nature Communications”. more

Niel Schröter’s research has focused on exotic materials and demonstrated their fascinating electronic states for the first time. His work has now been recognised through one of the Swiss Physical Society’s annual awards. He plans to build on this basic research at the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics and pave the way for quantum technologies.

We are happy to announce that Prof. Dr. Daniel Loss from the University of Basel Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute has been appointed as an external scientific member of our Institute. more
