Title: Spintronic Devices
Description: JILA research shows that electrons tend to hold consistent 'spins' longer in low-energy, disordered areas of a semiconductor (representing by the valleys of the cartoon), while spinning more erratically in higher-energy areas of a perfect crystal where movement is more fluid (represented by the mountains and air).
