magnonic holographic device

Prototype of holographic memory device


Brief Description

Background: Image processing and speech recognition are a few operations that challenge computer memory devices. Replacing a computer memory device is not the solution, but rather, finding ways to complement its activity is a more successful route.

Description: UCR researchers have created a prototype of a magnonic holographic memory (MHM) device that provides unmatched data storage capacity and data processing capabilities in electronic devices. This device uses spin waves instead of optical waves, which allow for a higher energy storage. This MHM does not replace the computer memory device, but rather complements it and allows for a new and better performing generation of memory devices.
