Diamonds Could Pave Way to Faster Computers

The Economic Times reported that scientists have shown that information can flow through a diamond wire. In the future, the discovery could be used to make faster computers.

As quoted in the market news:

In the experiment, electrons did not flow through diamond as they do in traditional electronics.

Rather, they stayed in place and passed along a magnetic effect called ‘spin’ to each other down the wire – like a row of sports spectators doing ‘the wave’.

This spin could one day be used to transmit data in computer circuits, researchers said.
