Scientists may have found a way to create tiny, but more powerful, signal-generating or receiving antennas and other electronics. They're seeking ways to synchronize the magnetic spins in nanoscale devices, and they may have just found a method.

The aim of the so-called "spintronic" technology revolution is to harness the power of an electron's spin, the property responsible for magnetism, rather than its negative charge. In this case, the researchers found that stacked nanoscale magnetic vortices separated by an extremely thin layer of cop...
