Researchers from Queen Mary, University of London (UK) and the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) have shown that a magnetically polarised current can be manipulated by electric fields.

Published this week in the journal , this important discovery opens up the prospect of simultaneously processing and storing data on electrons held in the molecular structure of - combining and processing power on the same chip.

"This is especially exciting, as this discovery has been made with flexible organic semiconductors

 

, which are set to be the new generation of displays for mobile devices, TVs and computer monitors, and could offer a step-change in and reduced weight of these devices," said Dr Alan Drew, from Queen Mary's School of Physics, who led the research.
