Researchers ID promising key to performance of next-gen electronics

Evgeny TsymbalEvgeny Tsymbal and Lingling Tao have identified a material whose crystalline structure might better sustain an electron’s spin: a property that, similar to charge, can represent bits of information in digital devices. This stability could result in cheaper, faster, and more energy-efficient devices. (11/13/18)


Nebraska-Tuskegee collaboration to expand minority opportunities in materials science

Evgeny TsymbalWith the support of a six-year grant from the National Science Foundation, Nebraska’s Materials Research Science and Engineering Center will collaborate with Tuskegee University to offer the latter’s undergraduate and graduate students more opportunities for conducting upper-echelon research. The equipment housed at NCMN will help facilitate this partnership. (11/1/18)


Xu wins Early Career award

Xiaoshan XuXiaoshan Xu earned a $750,000 award from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Early Career Research Program to develop a novel approach that could advance the field of spintronics. He hopes that spin-based devices transform the industry by eventually replacing charge-based electronics. (9/10/18)
