NVE Granted Superparamagnetic Patent
February 9, 2010NVE Corporation today was granted patent number 7,660,081
titled Superparamagnetic Platelets Field Sensing Devices.
Superparamagnetism is the magnetic state of a material between highly ordered
parallel spins (ferromagnetism) and randomly ordered spins (paramagnetism). The
superparamagnetic effect occurs in ferromagnetic structures smaller than a critical
value or at temperatures higher than a critical temperature.
Applications referenced in the patent include digital memories and magnetic sensing
The grant brings NVEs U.S. patent total to 53. The company has more than
100 patents worldwide issued, pending, or licensed from others. Links to the new
patent and NVEs other U.S. patents can be found on the Patents page of the
companys Website (www.nve.com).
NVE is a leader in the practical commercialization of spintronics, a nanotechnology
that relies on electron spin rather than electron charge to acquire, store and
transmit information. The company manufactures high-performance spintronic products
including sensors and couplers that are used to acquire and transmit data. NVE
has also licensed its spintronic magnetoresistive random access memory technology,
commonly known as MRAM.
