Researchers develop method for magnetic impurity introduction.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
December 3, 2009 Researchers from NIST and the Naval Research Laboratory have developed way to introduce magnetic impurities in semiconductor crystal by prodding it with scanning tunneling microscope (STM). This technique will let researchers selectively implant atoms in crystal one at a time to learn about its electrical and magnetic properties on atomic scale. In turn, this process will promote development of spintronics - electronic devices that will use electron spin - for storing information.
