Research at Argonne indicates that you don't need a magnetic material to create spin current from insulators—with important implications for the field of spintronics and the development of high-speed, low-power electronics that use electron spin rather than charge to carry information.
The Postdoctoral Society of Argonne and the Postdoctoral Program Office present a Career Workshop, Wednesday, July 29, 2015, Building 446 Auditorium (on the back side of the APS). Lunch will be served at 11:45 a.m., with the workshop from 12 to 1:30 p.m.
Scientists from Argonne are designing ways to improve—and hopefully optimize—land use. In collaboration with the farming community of the Indian Creek Watershed in central Illinois, these researchers are finding ways to simultaneously meet three objectives: maximize a farmer’s production, grow feedstock for bioenergy and protect the environment.
