New storage medium uses physical properties of antiferromagnetic material

22.2.2021

Phys.org

Antiferromagnets hold great promise for exciting applications in data processing, as the orientation of their magnetic moment—in contrast to the ferromagnets used in conventional storage media—cannot be accidentally overwritten by magnetic fields. In recent years, this potential has given rise to the budding research field of antiferromagnetic spintronics, which is the focus of numerous research groups around the world.

BusinessLink

Physiker der Universität Basel haben erstmals eine Graphenverbindung aus Kohlenstoffatomen und wenigen Stickstoffatomen hergestellt, die ein regelmässiges Gitter aus Sechs- und Dreiecken bilden. Dieses wabenförmige, sogenannte Kagome-Gitter verhält sich wie ein Halbleiter und könnte zudem ungewöhnliche elektrische Eigenschaften besitzen. Womöglich findet es künftig Verwendung in elektronischen Sensoren oder Quantencomputern.

Kagome graphene promises exciting properties

18.02.2021

18.02.2021 – For the first time, physicists from the University of Basel have produced a graphene com- pound consisting of carbon atoms and a small num- ber of nitrogen atoms in a regular grid of hexagons and triangles. This honeycomb-structured “kagome lattice” behaves as a semiconductor and may also have unusual electrical properties. In the future, it could potentially be used in electronic sensors or quantum computers.

Kagome graphene promises exciting properties

15.2.2021

(Nanowerk News) Researchers around the world are searching for new synthetic materials with special properties such as superconductivity — that is, the conduction of electric current without resistance. These new substances are an important step in the development of highly energy-efficient electronics. The starting material is often a single-layer honeycomb structure of carbon atoms (graphene).
