Conventional devices relied on electric fields to store information, but existing devices require large electric and magnetic fields for storing information which are difficult to produce and contain. The researchers have developed a potential solution, a new switching element made from chromia (Cr2o3). The design fuses chroma with magnetic material, which provides effective quantum coupling to Cr magnetic moments. If the device is successfully fabricated it can replace dynamic random access memory in computers.
