Bismuth-telluride discovery brings spintronics devices closer

By / July 7, 2009

Researchers at the DOE’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University think they have a nifty new material that could unleash a new generation of spintronics applications, providing quicker and more efficient computer chips. According to the SLAC and SU researchers, the material – a bismuth–telluride compound, Bi2Te3 – works as a topological insulator. The…
