Nomination text:
The smaller and smaller electronic components become, the more difficult waste heat generated by these small components can be to remove. In this publication, the authors describe a technique that can take heat away from the system with a spin-carrying current. The method makes use of magnetomechanical coupling, in which the magnetic state of a material affects its vibrational energy. The result of these calculations was that for tuned coupling parameters the effective vibrational temperature could be reduced by a factor of 2 from its equilibrium value. This would be of extreme value in logic units and therefore warrants the selection of this work as a Highlight in Nanotechnology.
