Researchers uncover unusual effects on the electronic structure of TMDs

To understand how a TMD semiconductor behaves inside a device, researchers investigated the effects of sub-monolayer deposition of alkali atoms at the surface of the semiconductor tungsten selenide. These deposited atoms mimics the electric field effects that a semiconductor would experience inside a transistor, while allowing researchers to directly analyse the electronic structure by a state of the art spectroscopic technique.

Horizontal magnetic tunneling in a field-effect device integrated on silicon

The choice for energy-efficient technologies is not a matter of price choice but it is slowly turning into a matter of heat. A recent work suggests devices fabricated directly on Silicon with magnetic tunnel junctions governed by electric pulses, which means without current and minimizing the problem of overheating.
