2D Sheets of Tin Atoms to Have Exotic Uses in Electronics

Just as graphene varies from ordinary graphite, stanenes behave extremely differently in order to humble tin in bulk form. Due to relatively strong spin-orbit interactions for electrons in heavy elements, single-layer tin has been predicted to be a "topological insulator," also called a quantum spin Hall …

New Measurements Show Spin Transistor is Within Reach

University of Groningen physicists Siddhartha Omar and professor Bart van der Wees have shown that it is possible to influence the lifetime of spin in graphene. They used tungsten disulfide to induce spin orbit coupling in graphene and were able to tune the effect with an electric field. This confirms that …
