    IBM observes spintronic 'waltz'

    The long-term aim for this sort of thing (I think..) is superconduction. However, I just find it interesting that they can observe electrons waltzing.

    I wonder if spindizzy knows any 'an electron walks into a bar' jokes.

    Probably one involving a "negative charge" or being excited by a photon.

    An obviously drunk proton staggers in to a bar. He asks the barman for a drink. "You sure that's a good idea?" asks the barman.

    "Yeah I'm positive."

    So 'we' can now fire pulses of light that are billionths of billionths of a second in duration and we may just be able to see electrons orbiting atoms. Holy Fuck!!!

    Amazing

    I always struggle trying to fully comprehend the scale with these stories.

    "just 67 billionths of a billionth of a second"

    I find it a little scary that they're actually trying to fold space already.

    I had no idea we could even do that yet!
