Congratulations to Afshin Houshang, Ezio Iacocca, Philipp Dürrenfeld, Sohrab Sani, and Randy Dumas! Spin wave beams can now be generated and controlled using spin transfer torque. Here those beams finally solve how to synchronize a record number of spin-torque oscillators. We basically see no limitations to how many additional oscillators we can daisy chain together and synchronizae. They can also be applied in a number of other ways, e.g. in neuromorphic devices and computing.

Spin-wave-beam driven synchronization of nanocontact spin-torque oscillators
A number of blogs and journals have highlighted our work:
Researchers at the University of Gothenburg create focused spin wave beams - synchronize an unlimited number of spintronic oscillators.
