Researchers detect elusive quantum property known as 'Berry's phase' in a semiconductor

Press/Media: Research

Release date: 20/3/2014

Description

n conducting materials, free electrons can move from one point to another, conveying their electrical charge to produce an electrical current. Electrons have another property, known as spin, that could be harnessed and manipulated in 'spintronic' circuits and has the potential to revolutionize the field of conventional electronics, leading to new functionalities and devices with enhanced performance.
