The Ohio State University Center for Exploration of Novel Complex Materials (ENCOMM) was established in 2006 to address global issues around the development of new materials that will form the foundation for future technological innovation and economic competitiveness. 

Computer chips equipped with tiny magnets might one day provide high-density data storage; computers with magnets in their central processing units (CPUs) would never have to boot up. The entire computer would be contained inside the CPU, making such devices even smaller and less power-hungry as well.
