Overtones can provide high-speed data communications

For the first time researchers have succeeded in producing what are known as spin wave overtones. Spintronic oscillators are a kind of nano components in which spin waves are used to generate microwave signals in the gigahertz range. Spin wave overtones can be compared to the overtones (flageolets) that are used in music. Along with colleagues in Gothenburg and Portugal, Professor Johan Åkerman has now demonstrated how to play and strengthen such overtones at the nano level. The technology makes it possible to increase the data transmission rate of wireless communication.
