First-Ever Wireless Device Developed to Make Magnetism Appear in Non-Magnetic Materials

Researchers at the UAB and ICMAB-CSIC have succeeded in bringing wireless technology to the fundamental level of magnetic devices. The emergence and control of magnetic properties in cobalt nitride layers (initially non-magnetic) by voltage, without connecting the sample to electrical wiring represents a paradigm shift that can facilitate the creation of magnetic nanorobots for biomedicine and computing systems where basic information management processes do not require wiring. Part of the experiments were performed at BOREAS beamline of the ALBA Synchrotron. […]
