Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Researchers proposed a new magnetic logic combining the advantages of both spin-based and magnetic-field-based logic by coupling the anomalous Hall effect in magnetic materials and the negative differential resistance (NDR) phenomenon in semiconductors. They introduced a nonlinear semiconductor component with NDR phenomenon into the magnetic logic to improve output performance. For simplicity and flexibility the NDR component composed of silicon-based complementary bipolar transistors was adopted in the proof-of-concept experiment.
