Probabilistic spintronics – Computing and Device Physics

Shunsuke Fukami, Tohoku University

Probabilistic behavior of physical system is mostly regarded as a nuisance in conventional electronics. Contrary to this perception, here I show that properly designed probabilistic systems is even useful for unconventional computers that address complex problems more efficiently than conventional computing hardware, and spintronic systems can be a prime candidate on that front, opening a new paradigm, probabilistic spintronics.
In this seminar, I will show some proof-of-concepts of the spintronic probabilistic computers and describe how the computers can be constructed from probabilistic spintronic devices and how it solves computationally hard problems [1-4]. I will also discuss the physics governing the probabilistic behavior of spintronics devices and strategy to develop the devices for high-performance probabilistic computers [5-9].
