Researchers make magnetic graphene
Graphene, a one-atom thick sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice, has many desirable properties. Magnetism alas is not one of them. Magnetism can be induced in graphene by doping it with magnetic ...
Spin-based electronics: New material successfully tested
Spintronics is an emerging field of electronics, where devices work by manipulating the spin of electrons rather than the current generated by their motion. This field can offer significant advantages to ...
Graphene's multi-colored butterflies
Combining black and white graphene can change the electronic properties of the one-atom thick materials, University of Manchester researchers have found.
Exploring the magnetism of a single atom
Magnetic devices like hard drives, magnetic random access memories (MRAMs), molecular magnets, and quantum computers depend on the manipulation of magnetic properties. In an atom, magnetism arises from the ...
Researchers see rare-earth-like magnetic properties in iron
(Phys.org) —Scientists at the Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have observed magnetic properties typically associated with those observed in rare-earth elements in iron. These properties are observed ...
Semiconductor material can be magnetized with light, suggesting new technology opportunities
(Phys.org) —Interest in oxide-based semiconductor electronics has exploded in recent years, fueled largely by the ability to grow atomically precise layers of various oxide materials. One of the most important ...
Infrared vision lets researchers see through—and into—multiple layers of graphene
(Phys.org) —It's not X-ray vision, but you could call it infrared vision.
Surfing on acoustic waves (w/ Video)
(Phys.org) —ETH researchers are able to make objects such as particles and liquid droplets fly in mid-air by letting them ride on acoustic waves. For the first time, they have been able to also control ...
