Rechargeable spin battery promising for spintronics and quantum computing
April 20, 2017

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.  Researchers have shown how to create a rechargeable spin battery made out of materials called topological insulators, a step toward building new spintronic devices and quantum computers. Unlike ordinary materials that are either insulators or conductors, topological insulators are both at the same time - they are insulators inside but conduct electricity on the surface. The materials might be used for spintronic devices and quantum computers more powerful than today's technologies.
