Harry Warring, the new Chair of the MacDiarmid Emerging Research Association (MESA) likes spin - spintronics to be precise – the use of an electron’s spin as well as its charge for the development of new materials. Materials used in electronics rely on the charge of electrons within the material, but the emerging field of spintronics also uses the magnetic properties of a material, associated with the spin of its electrons, to create new advanced materials.
