Unlike other concepts that harness electrons, spin current can transfer information without causing heat from the electric charge, which is a serious problem for current semiconductor devices.
The most common method for polarising nuclear spin is called dynamic nuclear polarisation; this means that the electrons' spin simply influences the nucleus to spin in the same direction.
Second, measuring black hole spin can tell us about the recent growth history of a SMBH and its host galaxy.
The researchers found that electrons in the new system had stable spins for up to a nanosecond or so.
For the vertically oriented neutron spin in a simultaneous measurement of R and N one of the correlations will produce an up-down asymmetry while the other leads to a forward-backward asymmetry.
Pierre Luc Gagnon: McTwists if you flip it, and fives if you spin it flat.
Using 8-hydroxyquinoline aluminum (Alq3), the scientists sandwiched the organic semiconductor between two metallic layers--one consisting of lanthanum strontium manganese oxide, the other of cobalt--to build three-layer organic spin valves.
"Our experiments removed this magnetic interaction and looked to see if there might be some other interaction that would orient our experimental spins. One interpretation of this 'other' interaction is that it could be a long-range interaction between the spins in our apparatus, and the electron spins within the Earth, that have been aligned by the geomagnetic field.
Here I is spin of a nucleus, [p.sub.t] is polarization of a target, s is a neutron spin, and k is its wave vector.
This is called "spin current" and unlike other concepts of harnessing electrons, the spin current can transfer information without generating heat in electric devices.
Flat spins can be bad because in some cases of wing and fuselage loading and distribution of mass, recovery is impossible through normal means.
Scientists have long wondered whether superfluidity in a fermionic fluid could persist in the face of a spin imbalance, when there are more fermions with one spin than with the other.
Neutron spins are rotated by [pi]/2 from the longitudinal to transverse direction in the first [pi]/2 coil.
A perhaps greater challenge will be to divide the electron spins more efficiently - in the present study, only a few of every hundred electrons separated according to their spin.
The phrase is often a catchall, including encounters with inadvertent stalls and spins, wake turbulence, and uncommanded spirals.
