Van Wees Lab Video: Spinning electrons unleash microelectronics revolution

22 January 2018

University of Groningen physicists Siddhartha Omar and professor Bart van der Wees have shown that it is possible to influence the lifetime of spin in graphene. They used tungsten disulfide to induce spin orbit coupling in graphene and were able to tune the effect with an electric field. This confirms that it is possible to make a graphene-based spin transistor, which is a vital component in spin-based electronics or spintronics. The results were published on 16 January in Physical Reviews B.
