Do you know what topological insulators are? Other than a fancy term from The Big Bang Theory (S04E14 for those who care)? Well, these materials hold the key to a future where electronics are replaced by spintronics: using the spin of electrons rather than their charge, which can open up a bunch of cool technologies. Like faster computers. So fast, in fact, that they’ll make your head spin. Get it? Spin?
