The quantum waltz of electrons hints at the next generation of chips

(Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) EPFL researchers have successfully measured some of the quantum properties of electrons in two-dimensional semiconductors. This work in the field of spintronics could one day lead to chips that are not only smaller but that also generate less heat.
