Magnetic Transistors - Better Against Radiation?
South Korean researchers have developed a magnetic transistor switch which may save power:
I'm wondering if this could benefit space applications, but on more than just power-saving.
Magnetic states aren't as easily harmed by cosmic rays, thanks to spin majorities. That's why MRAM (magnetic RAM) is good for space applications.
I was then thinking that processors based on magnetic transistor switches could create a more robust system that's much more capable of standing upto the harsh radiation environment of outer space without suffering crashes and glitches that can jeopardize a space mission.
Could magnetic transistors in fact be superior in higher radiation environments like space and perhaps nuclear reactors, and even near medical radiation equipment?

Could be useful for particle detectors as well - they receive significant radiation doses (much more than electronics in space).
