New species of electrons can lead to better computing
Manchester, UK (SPX) Sep 15, 2014
In a research paper published this week in Science, the collaboration led by MIT's theory professor Leonid Levitov and Manchester's Nobel laureate Sir Andre Geim report a material in which electrons move at a controllable angle to applied fields, similar to sailboats driven diagonally to the wind. The material is graphene - one atom-thick chicken wire made from carbon - but with a difference. It is transformed to a new so-called superlattice state by placing it on top of boron nitride, also known ... read more
