It is a common observation that the resistance of a conducting film on a flexible substrate increases when subjected to strain, albeit with a few exceptions (such as a variant of conducting polymer PEDOT: PSS, where the reverse is observed)…. Read More ›
Could ultrashort circularly polarized light pulses be the key for next-generation spintronic devices?
Image of the Week: Band inversion due to anisotropic spin-orbit coupling results in a Lifshitz transition in disordered graphene
This week’s image is from a paper recently published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter: The influence of anisotropic Rashba spin–orbit coupling on current-induced spin polarization in graphene. This work by Mir Vahid Hosseini uses Green’s function method and linear response theory to… Read More ›
For the first time, a 7×7 intensity modulation of electronic band structure has been observed in the 7×7–reconstructed Si(111) surface. Sheverdyaeva et al. give an account of their research published in Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter.
