  • Omnidirectional Control of Large Electrical Output in a Topological Antiferromagnet

    March 02, 2021

    Omnidirectional Control of Large Electrical Output in a Topological Antiferromagnet
    Control of magnetization direction is essential for the wide application of ferromagnets; it defines the signal size of memory and sensor. However, the magnetization itself causes a dilemma. While its size matters to obtain strong responses upon its reversal, the large magnetization concomitantly suppresses the range of its directional control …
