Light-steering of spin-polarized currents in topological insulators


Topological insulators are a fascinating group of materials. A spin-polarization occurs, as soon as an electric current flows in the material. MQC scientist Prof Dr Alexander Holleitner and his cooperation partners measured this now for the first time optically at room temperature.
