    Summary form only given. The discovery of the crystal detector by Ferdinand Braun in 1874 is briefly discussed. Braun's interest in the electrical conductivity of metal salts in solution (electrolytes) ultimately led to his study of metal sulfide crystals and other crystalline solids, which conduct even when not dissolved. After much experimentation, Braun reported in 1874 (Annalen der Physik und ... View full abstract»

    Giant magneto-resistive random-access memories (GMRAMs) are magnetic nonvolatile random-access memories that use magnetic storage in magnetic multilayers to store data and the giant magneto-resistance (GMR) effect to read stored data. Pseudo-spin-valve (PSV) and spin-valve (SV) devices are patterned magnetic multilayers that exhibit the GMR effect in current-in-plane (CIP) structures. This article... View full abstract»
