Graphene nanoribbons for emerging quantum technologies

In the last decades, a mathematical description of symmetries in nature called topology has been applied to describe and predict new electronic and magnetic properties of materials. A very simple aspect of topology connects a symmetry in the atomic structure of a crystal with a class of materials. Many materials that we know or use […]

Unraveling the magnetism of a graphene triangular flake

Unraveling the magnetism of a graphene triangular flake Graphene is a diamagnetic material, this is, unable of becoming magnetic. However, a triangular piece of graphene is predicted to be magnetic. This apparent contradiction is a consequence of “magic” shapes in the structure of graphene flakes, which force electrons to “spin” easier in one direction. Triangulene […]

Magnetism of topological boundary states induced by boron substitution in graphene nanoribbons

We released a preprint on “Magnetism of topological boundary states induced by boron substitution in graphene nanoribbons” to Arxiv. The article shows the promising perspective of incorporating spin polarization in the conjugated electron system of graphene nanoribbons. Using automatically precise engineering topological defects it is shown that magnetism can also be induced away from physical […]
