Shift from electronics to spintronics opens up possibilities of faster data
“Electronics is based on measuring the tiny electrical charge of electrons passing through electronic circuits. An alternative approach under development is spintronics, which instead relies not on electrons' charge, but on another of their fundamental quantum-mechanical properties: spin.”

After Silicon Valley: Magnetic Spintronics Could Bring Next-Gen Computing
“ For many decades now, silicon has been the undisputed heavyweight champ of the semiconductor industry. They named an entire valley after it, after all. But new research out of the University of Denver suggests that things might play out quite differently over the next few years. If all goes well, the center of computer industry could potentially relocate over the Rockies to Yttrium Iron Garnet Valley. It doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, but that’s progress for you.”

Moore’s Law Is Ending.. So, What’s Next?
“ Now, Moore's law isn't a law of physics, it's just a good hunch that's driven companies to make better chips. But experts are claiming that this trend is slowing down. So, to power the next wave of electronics, there are a few promising options in the works.”
