Samuel Bladwell - A new spin on electronics


  Last updated October 25, 2019 at 3:20 pm


Samuel Bladwell from the University of New South Wales brought the spin to FameLab Australia, serving up research on the relationship between the rotation and motion of an electron in semiconductors.

Spin-orbit couple occurs between the rotation and motion of an electron. It’s this couple that alters the behaviour of electrons. Through his research, Samuel Bladwell hopes to improve technology, and perhaps even pioneer a new type of a spin, rather than charge based electronic.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
