Researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS) have identified a promising spintronics candidate material - few-layer thin semimetal molybdenum ditelluride (MoTe2). When thinned to a few layer thickness, the MoTe2 features excellent Spin Hall Effect properties.

The team now aims to incorporate MoTe2 into functional devices - such as MRAM devices.
