Metal-Insulator Transition Below 4 nm Could Lead to Novel Electronics

"UNAM researchers demonstrates metal-insulator transition persists even below 4 nm for the first time in free-standing vanadium dioxide" Vanadium dioxide is an intriguing material that displays a metal-insulator transition (MIT) at 65 C. This phenomena emerges from strong electronic correlations and the underlying physics hasn't been fully understood yet. The MIT in vanadium dioxide promises [...]
