Check out our new work in Nature Electronics, where we demonstrate electrical control of antiferromagnetic order in a CMOS-compatible metallic antiferromagnet, using very low current density:

The technology may enable highly scaled, secure, and ultrafast MRAM based on antiferromagnetic materials, for AI and high-performance computing applications.

In collaboration with Prof. Giovanni Finocchio and Prof. Matthew Grayson. Kudos to the team: Jiacheng Shi, Dr. Victor Lopez-Dominguez, Dr. Hamid Almasi, Prof. Francesca Garesci, Chulin Wang.
