January 2021 is the official start of the ANR project Contrabass. At the cross-road between spintronics, ferroelectricity and quantum materials physics, CONTRABASS will pioneer a new realm in spintronics, where spin currents can be generated, manipulated and converted by electric fields in a non-vol...

In spite of pandemic-related delays in every aspects of the projects (samples fabrication, beamtime cancellation, delayed analysis), we managed to do a comprehensive study of WSe2/BiFeO3 heterostructure during the first semester of 2020. This was the result of nice work from our collaborators fr...

November 2019 is the official start of the ANR project Cornflake. With the help of Raphaël Salazar, new PhD student of Cassiopée, it aims at understanding better how a ferroelectric polarization can alter the electronic properties of an transition metal dichalcogenides layer. To achieve this goal, t...

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...
