A new breakthrough in valleytronics

Press/Media: Research


An international team of scientists led by Prof Philip King from the University of St Andrews and Dr Mohammad Saeed Bahramy from the University of Manchester has made a major discovery in the field of valleytronics. The research, published in the journal Nature Materials, reveals a giant valley-selective Ising coupling in the surface layer of an intercalated transition metal dichalcogenide, V1/3NbS2, using a combination of state-of-the-art spectroscopy techniques and theoretical modellings performed on the MASAMUNE supercomputer at the Center for Computational Materials Science (CCMS) in collaboration with Associate Prof Rodion Belosludov from Institute for Materials Research, Tohoku University...
