Spins and Heat in Nanoscale Electronic Systems
SHINES is a new Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) funded in 2014 by the US Department of Energy. SHINES consists of 14 PIs from 7 institutions (UC Riverside, UCLA, UC Irvine, Johns Hopkins University, Colorado State University, Arizona State University, and University of Texas at Austin) plus two UCR PIs on two seed projects.
Detection of high fequency magnetic resonance could revolutionize electronics
Jing Shi, the director of SHINES EFRC research center, discovered an electrical detection method for terahertz electromagnetic waves, which are extremely difficult to detect. The discovery could help miniaturize the detection equipment on microchips and enhance sensitivity. Terahertz is a...
