A totally transparent ferromagnetic semiconductor that operates at room temperatures seems to pave the way for flexible electronic displays. Researchers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology are using titanium dioxide (TiO2) doped with cobalt to produce semiconductor devices that rely on electron spin rather than charge. Magnetic random memory has been produced before but the technologies required expensive low temperatures to maintain magnetic charge. The new device was discovered by the developers to be transparent, a characteristic that makes the material viable for low-power displays.
