Commonly used industrial dyes hold the key to advancing the new science of ‘spintronics’, say researchers working on a new a £2.5 million study.
Spintronics holds out the possibility of a range of future applications, such as quantum computing, which aims to deliver secure, low-power computers capable of processing much larger quantities of data than is currently possible. Scientists believe that sensitive new biosensors able to analyse blood or urine samples rapidly and accurately could also be developed as a result of this work.
