Using Graphene to Spin Electrons in New Directions

Electrons, like almost everything in life, are lazy. It has long been known that when traveling through conductive material, electrons always take the easiest route - that is, the path of least resistance. However, just like with people, the right kind of encouragement can make electrons take the harder road. Now, experts from MIT have discerned that graphene might be the life coach electrons have been waiting for.

Details on this discovery were published just this week in the prestigious journal Science.
