These measures allow forming a cluster having distinct energy levels, each being assigned to a distinct information content. These systems pave the way for future devices based on clusters of coupled islands and, armed with the complete knowledge of the energy states, the door is opened for use of these finite multistate clustered structures in future spintronic devices, for example for data storage, memory applications or to perform logic operations.09-16-2010

20110026296Nonvolatile Optical Memory Element, Memory Device, and Reading Method Thereof - A nonvolatile optical memory element in which a ferromagnetic body is provided on a semiconductor causes such a problem that in a case where magnetization of the ferromagnetic body is read by light, magneto-optical response becomes very small when the ferromagnetic body is small in volume. The present invention provides a memory element, a memory device, and a data reading method, each of which is applicable to data reading from a nonvolatile optical memory element. In a nonvolatile optical memory element having a structure in which a ferromagnetic body is provided on a semiconductor that is connected to an optical waveguide, electrons are injected into the semiconductor via the ferromagnetic body so that the electrons that are spin-polarized according to a magnetization direction of the ferromagnetic body are injected into the semiconductor, thereby enlarging a region in which a photomagnetic effect occurs effectively. By applying an electric pulse and an optical pulse to the nonvolatile optical memory element, it is possible to effectively read recorded data according to a magnetization direction of the ferromagnetic body.02-03-2011

20080205110Digital Magnetic Current Sensor and Logic - A sensor for sensing magnetic field strength has a sensor element, and detection circuitry for detecting a level of resistance of the sensor element, the level of resistance varying with magnetic field under test and having hysteresis, so that upon electromagnetic excitation the resistance can switch between two or more stable levels as the magnetic field under test varies. The sensor outputs a digital signal according to the level of resistance. The sensor output may further be interpreted in terms of a change-of-state upon electromagnetic excitation. As the sensor no longer needs a different characteristic from magnetic memory cells, it can be much easier to construct and to integrate with magnetic memory cells than an analog sensor. An excitation signal varies a threshold for the magnetic field under test at which the resistance switches, to enable multiple measurements with different thresholds. Multiple sensor elements can have different thresholds, by having differing geometry or size. It has applications in current sensing, and programmable magnetic logic, when multiple input currents are sensed. Changing the threshold can change the logic operation between AND and OR.08-28-2008
