New Species of Electrons Can Lead to Better Computing

September 12, 2014 5:11 pm | by University of Manchester | Comments

Researchers 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...
