The Spanish ICN2 Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group declare a unique graphene mechanism especially suited for spintronics applications.

Graphene's small intrinsic spin-orbit coupling and vanishing hyperfine interaction is known as holding great potential for use in spintronics applications, and this unprcedented spin relaxation mechanism for non-magnetic samples can prove to be a major step towards utilizing graphene's properties in non-charge-based information procesing and computing (a new generation of active- CMOS compatible- spintronic devices together with a non-voltaic low energy MRAM memories).
