'Topological insulators' promising for spintronics, quantum computers

18-11-2014

Researches have uncovered "smoking-gun" evidence to confirm the workings of an emerging class of materials that could make possible "spintronic" devices and practical quantum computers far more powerful than today's technologies. The materials are called "topological insulators." Unlike ordinary ...

Good vibrations give electrons excitations that rock an insulator to go metallic

12-11-2014

For more than 50 years, scientists have debated what turns particular oxide insulators, in which electrons barely move, into metals, in which electrons flow freely. Some scientists sided with Nobel Prize-winning physicist Nevill Mott in thinking direct interactions between electrons were the key. ...
