BFO can lead to quicker and cheaper Computer Memory
Hello Readers..! Today in this technical blog, we will discuss about the BFO Computer Memory. Actually, BFO is an aberrative form of Bismuth Ferrite. And has more potential to store the information as compared to the current storage devices available on the computer.
Application of BFO
Currently, we are using BFO in different fields like:
- Catalytic Sensor
- Optical Sensors
- Acoustic Sensors
- Conducting Polymer
- Other Electronic devices
And result from all of them is positive and surprisingly awesome.
In Present devices, we store information by using the magnetic field i.e (It is a process that requires lots of energy. During this process, more than 99% of energy is wasted in the form of heat.
“Is there any way to avoid waste of energy” was the question asked by Omid Sayedaghee.
So the response came from a doctoral candidate who said that – “We could store information by applying an electric field to write and magnetic field to read. This means if we are using a material that is responsible for both fields at the same time. And hence, we will be able to avoid the waste of energy.
BFO is multiferroic, that responds both electric fields as well as magnetic field. It potentially suitable to store the information on the computer, but its magneto-electric response is small.
Sayedaghaee and colleagues Bin Xu, Sergey Prosandeev and Charles Paillard, a professor of physics along with Distinguished Professor, employed the Arkansas High-Performance Computing centre to simulate the conditions. It will help them to enhance the magnetoelectric response to the point. And it is used to store the information in the most efficient way by using electricity, rather than magnetism.
The researchers found that the “Electro-Acoustic Magnon” is responsible for the increase in the memory of the device and its response time as well. It specifies that the discovery is a mix of three known “Quasi – Particles”. Quasi-Particles is similar to oscillation in Solid, Acoustic Phonos, Optical Phonos & Mango.
