About this video
A groundbreaking new semiconductor compound may lead to smaller, faster, less power-hungry electronics. It’s the first to build spintronic properties into a material that’s stable at room temperature and easily tailored to a variety of applications.
The new compound could eventually be used as the base material for spintronic processors and other devices, much like silicon is the base for electronic computing devices.
