New material interface improves functioning of non-silicon-based electronic devices

For the first time, researchers have designed a special material interface that has been shown to add to and to improve the functioning of non-silicon-based electronic devices, such as those used in certain kinds of random access memory. The new method could be used to design improved, more-efficient, multilevel and multifunctional devices, as well as enhanced nanoelectronic components — such as non-volatile information storage and processing; and spintronic components — an emerging technology that uses the natural spin of the electron to power devices.
