By using voltage instead of current, researchers say they have made major improvements to magnetoresistive random access memory – MRAM –  a faster, higher-capacity class of computer memory.

Current, magnetic memory is based on spin-transfer torque (STT), which uses the magnetic property of electrons – spin – in addition to their charge. STT utilizes an electric current to move electrons to write data into the memory.
