Researchers report a novel technique for magnetization switching using short 6-picosecond electrical pulses.
The switching is almost 100 times faster than in state-of-the-art spintronic devices. Moreover, the researchers found this technique to be highly energy efficient, another valuable property for magnetic memories.
