Energy efficient computing and memory-storage devices are key to further increases in high

performance computing that is essential to today’s data centric world. We discuss, on the one

hand, Magnetic Racetrack Memory[1, 2] that promises a high capacity, high performance, nonvolatile,

memory-storage device that could supplant magnetic disk drives and solid-state FLASH,

and, on the other hand an extremely energy-efficient memcapacitor device[3] that could allow

for massive neuromorphic computing systems.
