What Has Been Achieved:
Developed dual-gated magnetic topological heterostructures that manifest both the quantum anomalous and topological Hall effects as a function of the dual-gate voltages.
Importance of the Achievement:
This work provides a robust pathway for producing samples that enable the fundamental study of the interplay between Berry curvature in momentum space and real space. These unique samples and patterned devices are available for users as sample requests.
Unique Feature(s) of the MIP that Enabled this Achievement:
2DCC-MIP’s synthesis capabilities of magnetically-doped topological insulator heterostructures.
