The Hitachi Cambridge Laboratory, (HCL) is part of the R&D Centre of Hitachi Europe Ltd, and shares a building and facilities with the Microelectronics Research Centre of Cambridge University. The aim of the laboratory is to develop new concepts for future micro- and opto-electronics. HCL is a world leader in the development of nanoscale electronic devices, and has a track record of developing new device concepts based on the physics of electron transport in nanostructures. Outstanding achievements are the world-first demonstrations of single electron memory cells and single electron logic circuits, and more recently spin Hall effect and related spintronic transport systems.
