Spintronics is not exactly a new term in electronics, but it will make a significant change in future electronic gadgets arena. Physicists at the University of Utah are trying to bring to the fore a new organic light emitting diode (OLED) with spintronic technology that’s said to be cheap and more environmentally friendly than usual LEDs.
Using this spintronic LEDs, electronic device like TVs become more smooth and sharp than nowadays. Spintronics, otherwise known as magnetoelectronics, is an emerging technology exploiting both the intrinsic spin of the electron and its associated magnetic moment, in addition to its fundamental electronic charge, in solid-state devices.
This innovation would definitely make a huge difference in computer displays, lighting, and traffic lights and other numerous electronic devices.
The scientists at Utahhave even made a prototype by applying this technology. At present, the innovation only produces an orange glow, but is expected to produce red, blue and white spin OLEDs in the coming years and would be brighter, cheap and more eco-friendly.
