U-M materials science and engineering assistant professor and corresponding author on the paper in Nature Communications Robert Hovden discusses the new development of a semiconducting material that performs a quantum “flip.” It “flips” from a conductor to an insulator above room temperature, bringing the world “closer to a new generation of quantum devices and ultra-efficient electronics” as it provides additional ways to store information and faster switching. The faculty expert highlights the process and development of this material.
