New Method to Detect Spin Current in Quantum Materials Unlocks Potential for Alternative Electronics

Spin-polarized_4-probe_STM_ORNL_2.jpg

A new method that precisely measures the mysterious behavior and magnetic properties of electrons flowing across the surface of quantum materials could open a path to next-generation electronics. A team of scientists has developed an innovative microscopy technique to detect the spin of electrons in topological insulators, a new kind of quantum material that could be used in applications such as spintronics and quantum computing.

Purple Power: Synthetic ‘Purple Membranes’ Transform Sunlight to Hydrogen Fuel

Purple_Figure_1_900x673_fin.jpg

Argonne researchers have found a new way to produce solar fuels by developing “synthetic purple membranes.” These membranes involve an assembly of lipid nanodiscs, man-made proteins, and semiconducting nanoparticles that, when taken together, can transform sunlight into hydrogen fuel.
