These are the questions that University at Buffalo researcher Igor Zutic, a theoretical physicist, has been exploring over many years. 

He is one of many scientists who believe that magnets could revolutionize computing, forming the basis of high-capacity and low-energy memory, data storage and data transfer devices."
