New Physics Sandwiched Between Two Oxide Insulators By Dr. Karen Michaeli Her lecture notes: The continuous search for novel electronic and spintronic devices recently came to fruition in the form of oxide interfaces. Combining two boring oxide insulators can result in an unexpected highly-conducting layer at the interface. At present, similar conducting layers are used with great success in silicon-based computer chips. However, the oxide interfaces exhibit a much larger variety of phenomena, which may lead to additional applications, particularly in the field of
