Ferroelectric control of spin-orbit coupling in transition metal dichalcogenides

Project Description

With charge-based electronics getting to their limits in storage density, speed and energy consumption, spin-based electronics (spintronics) is now a central research topic and promises significa...

Researchers from C2N and University of Pennsylvania in collaboration with CASSIOPÉE and TEMPO beamlines found a reliable method to tune the electronic properties of 2D TMDs materials without quality degradation. In particular, they demonstrated that the electronic properties of single layer MoS2 ...

Angle-resolved photoemission measurements on YbB12 carried out on CASSIOPEE beamline evidenced the existence of a metallic surface state. The obtained results strongly suggest the topological origin of this surface state driven by the Kondo effect and suggest that YbB12 would be a topological Ko...

Cuprates (copper oxides) are currently used as highest temperature (-135° C) superconductors. Scientists are trying to find new candidates for which this temperature would be even higher. This involves understanding in detail the electronic mechanisms involved between the elements composing the supe...

Ferroelectric memories - in which information is coded within the direction of the electric polarization – are energy saving, durable and very fast electronic devices already commercially available. However, reading the information necessitates an auxiliary electronic circuit which limits the miniat...

Control of polarization is a key issue in research on ferroelectrics materials and its possible use for low-consumption electronic devices. A ferroelectric material spontaneously show microscopic domains with different polarization directions to minimize its energy. We showed very low energy electro...
