SPRING SPin Research IN Graphene

What’s the SPRING Project

Magnetism is a property that had been missing from graphene’s impressive list of physical properties – until now. Owing to its unconventional magnetic properties, graphene has been touted as a promising material for spintronics applications. The ambition of the EU-funded SPRING project is to develop an all-graphene platform, where spins can be used for transporting, storing and processing information. Researchers from different disciplines will collaborate to fabricate atomically precise open-shell graphene nanostructures, and manipulate their electron spin and charge, and nuclear spin state. The aim is to test the potential of graphene as a fundamental building block for spintronic devices.

Today marks another exciting day for all of the 6 collaborating @springfetopen institutions @UniversidadeUSC @IBMResearch @nanoGUNE @tudelft @UniofOxford @DIPCehu as they are sharing their progression of scientific and technical work at the 2nd periodic review meeting #EU_2020

Big thanks to Niklas Friedrich @cienciaparaelf2 for explaining the magnetic properties of #graphene in our #springfetopen project to the broader public in this fantastic podcast from @MInkorrekt : https://minkorrekt.de/mi212-wasserstoffquanten-in-der-blockchain/ at 03:39:18
