Spintronics to Treat Brain Disorders


MSI PI Jian-Ping Wang (Distinguished McKnight Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering) is featured in the Spring 2018 issue of the University of Minnesota Foundation’s Legacy magazine. Professor Wang is studying how spintronics could be used in new devices for magnetic brain stimulations that treat brain disorders such as Parkinson’s disease.

The article, with a video explaining spintronics, can be found on the Legacy website: A New Spin on Parkinson’s Disease.

Professor Wang uses MSI for computer calculations to support investigations into the electronic structure and magnetic properties of Fe16N2.
