2D materials for a major leap forward in non-volatile memory technologies

A review published last week in "Nature" highlights the extraordinary opportunities provided by two-dimensional (2D) materials for the development of next-generation non-volatile memories, based on spintronic mechanisms. Faster, low-power-consumption and high-capability memories are required to support the skyrocketing diffusion of smart devices and the Internet of Things. This work was coordinated by ICN2 group leaders and ICREA professors Stephan Roche and Sergio O. Valenzuela, and by Prof. Hyunsoo Yang from the National University of Singapore. It was carried out in collaboration with research centres and industrial partners in Europe and Asia, within the framework of the EU Graphene Flagship project.
