"Fast moving electrons at the surface of an oxide insulator."
Current microelectronics is based on silicon technology. As modern electronic devices have progressed geometrically, it has become evident the need to find alternative materials that can ensure continued progress in the field. The discovery of a conductive layer of about two nanometers deep in the insulating oxide (SrTiO3)-without adding a layer of another material- is a major step forward towards a microelectronics based on oxides. The finding of this high-mobility surface state, reported in Nature, has been uncovered by performing angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) on SrTiO3 single crystals, a popular wide-bandgap insulator.
