My research is on magnetic materials and memory devices for superconducting computers. We combine nanometer thick layers of magnetic and non-magnetic materials to develop memory devices that can operate at the ultra-low temperatures required by fast and efficient superconducting computers.
Energy efficient computers are urgently needed to reduce the enormous amounts of electricity consumed by data centers and to pave the way to sustainable growth of information technology.
We have reached the point where gradually improving existing computer technology is not enough to satisfy demand without dramatic environmental impact. We need radically new technological solutions to build faster and more energy efficient computers.Dr Eva Anton
