  • University of Utah physicist Christoph Boehme works in his laboratory on an apparatus used in a new study that brings physics a step closer to “spintronic” devices such as superfast computers, more compact data storage devices and more efficient organic LEDs or OLEDS than those used today for display screens in cell phones, computers and televisions. The study, published in the Sept. 19 issue of the journal Science, showed the physicists could read the subatomic “spins” in hydrogen nuclei and use the data to control current that powers light in a cheap, plastic LED, or OLED, under practical operating conditions.

  • An organic light-emitting diode, or OLED, glows orange when electrical current flows through it. University of Utah physicists used this kind of OLED – basically a plastic LED instead of a conventional silicon semiconductor LED – to show that they could read the subatomic “spins” in the center or nuclei of hydrogen isotopes and use those spins to control current to the OLED. It is a step toward “spintronic” devices such as faster computers, better data storage and more efficient OLEDS for TV, computer and cell phone displays.
