Researchers highlight potential of ‘magnetic’ graphene for spintronics2021-03-02
Silicon Republic reports that a UB-led research team has found a way to induce “artificial magnetic texture” in graphene, which could lead to new tech developments.
Researchers placed a 20-nanometre-thick magnet in direct contact with a sheet of graphene, which is less than one nanometre thick. “To give you a sense of the size difference, it’s a bit like putting a brick on a sheet of paper,” said Jonathan Bird, professor and chair of electrical engineering.
The paper, entitled "Remote Mesoscopic Signatures of Induced Magnetic Texture in Graphene," was published in Physical Review Letters.
