Spintronics research opens the way to new semiconductor technology [Keio Spintronics Network - Masaaki Tanaka Laboratory , Tokyo University] Masaaki Tanaka Laboratory at the University of Tokyo leads the spintronics research, a 21st century field of electronics that utilizes electron spin. Q. The computers we use today are based on large-scale integrated circuits (LSI), which are made of silicon transistors. The size of transistors is becoming smaller and smaller, but approaching the limits of microfabrication. Power consumption increases sharply, and the cost of making devices smaller becomes high. So we're approaching the limits in a variety of senses, both physically and economically. The semiconductors that have supported electronics and information technology so far utilize only the charge of electrons. But the Tanaka Lab is working to create a new paradigm for electronics, by utilizing spin, another degree of freedom possessed by electrons. By ***ogy with classical mechanics, spin is the rotation of an electron. Because the rotation of electrons can never be stopped, electrons can be described as the world's smallest magnets. The fact that materials can be made to exhibit ferromagnetism by controlling the direction of spin is a major key to spintronics technology. Q. In magnetic materials, electron spins are aligned, creating a ferromagnetic state. This is utilized to create high-density memory devices. One example is computer hard disks, and another is MRAM, which is expected to be used as next-generation non-volatile memory ...

The Legacy of Fairchild Semiconductor [Recorded Oct 5, 2007] Founded in September 1957 in Palo Alto, California by eight young engineers and scientists from Shockley Semiconductor Laboratories, Fairchild Semiconductor Corporation pioneered new products and technologies together with a youthful enthusiasm and manufacturing and marketing techniques that reshaped the semiconductor industry. The planar process developed in early 1959 revolutionized the production of semiconductor devices and continues to enable the manufacture of billion transistor microprocessor and memory chips today. Fairchild was the first manufacturer to introduce high-frequency silicon transistors and practical monolithic integrated circuits to the market. At the peak of its influence in the mid-1960s, as a division of Fairchild Camera & Instrument Corporation, the company was one of the world's largest producers of silicon transistors and controlled over 30 percent of the market for ICs. Fairchild's extraordinary success stimulated an entrepreneurial fervor that gave birth to the phenomenon of Silicon Valley. Including systems and software businesses, the total number of companies in the Bay Area and beyond with Fairchild roots today lies in the thousands. This lecture was presented during a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the founding of the company held at Stanford University and the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California on October 4, 5, and 6, 2007. Introduced by Staff Director of the Semiconductor Special Interest ...

391 San Antonio - A Semiconductor Documentary Silicon Valley is known worldwide as the global center of high tech innovation. In large part, the spark that ignited Silicon Valley's explosive growth can be traced back to a 50 year-old dispute that occurred in the building at 391 San Antonio Road, Mountain View, California. In the 1950s William Shockley was considered a "God" in the electronics world. He led the Bell Labs team that invented the transistor in 1948. With funding from Arnold Beckman -- a wealthy scientist-businessman -- Shockley established the Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory in 1955. Shockley went against Beckman's recommendation to set up in southern California, near Beckman's own company, and established the lab in a former Quonset hut at 391 San Antonio. Shockley's disruptive management style eventually forced eight of his young scientists to approach Arnold Beckman directly in an attempt to remove Shockley from day-to-day management. When their bid fails, the group feels they have burned their bridges and must find alternative employment. Through an East Coast banker, the scientists are introduced to Sherman Fairchild, a New York industrialist. He is intrigued by the potential of silicon transistors and agrees to support the group with an investment of $1.3 million to start a new company called Fairchild Semiconductor. In Silicon Valley lore, the dissenting scientists became known as the Traitorous Eight - some of whom went on to bigger and better things. Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore founded Intel in ...

Quantum mechanical coherence of electron and nuclear spins in semiconductor electrons [Keio Spintronics Network - Ohno Laboratory , Tohoku University] In the Laboratory for Nanoelectronics and Spintronics at Tohoku Universitys Research Institute of Electrical Communication, Hideo Ohnos group is working to interpret the quantum mechanical aspects of spintronics and find applications for them. Many of the semiconductor devices used in current electronics are nonmagnetic, and show little effect as magnets. But in non-magnetic semiconductors, the quantum effects of spin become prominent. The researchers aim to control these effects, and utilize them to develop new forms of IT and quantum computers. Q. With semiconductors, its usual to make integrated circuits. But what our group is doing is to turn semiconductors into magnets, and utilize electrical effects and spin effects in the semiconductors together. Theres no need for the materials to be semiconductors, but were using them to seek a new paradigm: controlling electrical effects using magnets, and controlling magnetic effects using electrical systems. The spin in nonmagnetic semiconductors, especially the nuclear spin, is known to maintain the quantum mechanical phase coherence for a long time. In Hideo Ohnos group, Associate Professor Yuzo Ohno is detecting the quantum mechanical aspects of spin in semiconductors through highly sensitive methods using light. These methods are called transmission time-resolved pump-probe and time-resolved Faraday and Kerr rotation. In this way, Yuzo Ohno works to ...

Semiconductor - Brilliant Noise, Sciene & Art Motion Image 2006 Brilliant Noise takes us into the data vaults of solar astronomy. After sifting through hundreds of thousands of computer files, made accessible via open access archives, Semiconductor have brought together some of the sun's finest unseen moments. These images have been kept in their most raw form, revealing the energetic particles and solar wind as a rain of white noise. This grainy black and white quality is routinely cleaned up by NASA, hiding the processes and mechanics in action behind the capturing procedure. Most of the imagery has been collected as single snapshots containing additional information, by satellites orbiting the Earth. They are then reorganised into their spectral groups to create time-lapse sequences. The soundtrack highlights the hidden forces at play upon the solar surface, by directly translating areas of intensity within the image brightness into layers of audio manipulation and radio frequencies. Early on in our fellowship we came across one still image of what turned out to be the Sun. We were fascinated by this image and wondered why we hadn't seen anything like it before. After some rooting about we discovered there were archives full of these documents of the sun but they required specialised knowledge just to extract each individual still from the data package it was stored in. We set about learning from the scientists the methods of extracting them and over the course of three months we downloaded gigabytes of archives. From here we ...

Developing New Semiconductor Materials as Magnets to Realize Semiconductor Spintronics [Keio Spintronics Network - Kuroda Laboratory , University of Tsukuba Graduate School of Pure and Applied Sciences (Materials Science and Engineering)] At the Kuroda Lab at the University of Tsukuba, researchers are working on the development of materials for new electronics. The new electronics include technology called spintronics. Q."Spintronics is a technology that uses electron spin to realize a variety of functions such as information transmission, calculations, and recording (memory) functions for example, and attention is being focused on spintronics as a next-generation electronics technology. Conventional semiconductor electronics use only the electric charge of electrons to realize a variety of functions, and silicon technology is a typical example of this. Thus far, semiconductors have become more highly integrated and miniaturized in accordance with Moore's Law, but it is predicted that in the near future, the limit of that miniaturization will be reached. Therefore, a variety of new technologies are now being proposed in order to overcome that limit and achieve higher integration, higher speed operations, and lower power consumption. We expect that spin electronics will be one of those technologies that will enable us to overcome this limit." Spintronics is a technology with new potential. However, there are still some large hurdles that must be overcome in order to use this technology. Q."Electrons have a spin property, so if we look at each individual ...
Semiconductor - Brilliant Noise Semiconductor makes Sound Films, which reveal our physical world in flux: cities in motion, shifting landscapes and systems in chaos. Central to these works is the role of sound, which becomes synonymous with the image as one gets created, controlled and deciphered by the other. Tonight they will perform a series of works using a combination of their own real-time animation software, Sonic Inc. and image responsive live soundtracks. :: Cinema - 11/03/08 :: The majority of cinema as a form seeks to: 1. capture ideas and impressions of the spaces and places we inhabit or 2. visualise those we can't. The former of these, representation, has been more dominant throughout cinema's history. The lens has in effect become a means of capturing our 'reality', allowing us to store and later reproduce sights and sounds to be replayed as a substitute for personal memories. With the arrival of computing and it's now widespread use within cinema we see the latter begin to take dominance. Cinema as representation is changing to cinema as simulation, creating an era more important than the transition from silent to sound or from black and white to colour. Cinema has the possibility to become a form without any necessarily inferred referent, it is known, quantifiable (pixels) and so can be modified, abstracted, constructed in numerous ways. It's method of production can be improved, changed or even reconceived allowing it's authors to work as never before. Cinema ...
