Research Could Help Advance 'Spintronics'

June 18, 2007

News thumbnail computing graphic Qubits might very well be the vehicle for the next revolution in computing. Silicon technology has made our computers faster and faster, but now it seems that we are reaching the limits of what is possible with ones and zeros. One of the answers could be the transition from the "good-old" bit to the flashy qubit. The "qu" in qubit stands for quantum. Full Story

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2016, its budget is $7.5 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 48,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards. NSF also awards about $626 million in professional and service contracts yearly.
