Antiferromagnets are suitable for dissipationless nanoelectronics, contrary to current theories

Electrons (gray wave packets) in antiferromagnetic (left) and nonmagnetic (middle) crystals move along the applied electric current (right). The combination of antiferromagnetic and nonmagnetic atoms (right) generates surprisingly transverse Hall motion of the electron. In the left and right panels, the blue and red shadings mark the positive and negative magnetization densities. Credit: Libor Šmejkal […]
