Conventional electronics uses charge of electron.Spin based electronics incorporates spin of electron.Spin is the intrinsic property of an electron.Spin can exist one of the two states up or down.
22-08-2014 4 TOPOLOGICAL INSULATORControlling electron spin can be achieved with materials called topological insulators.Behave as insulators on the inside,but are highly conductive on their surface.
22-08-2014 5A new class of topological insulator is Topological Kondo Insulator .As insulators are cooled to absolute zero,their ability to insulate effectively becomes infinite.Under these conditions,some insulators atypically retain a tiny bit of conductivity.These materials,termed Kondo Insulators.In contrast to other 3D topological inulator,a TKI is truly insulating in the bulk.The strong electron correlations are present in the system,which may interact with the novel topological phase.

Topological kondo insulator.It directly measures electron spin.At high temperature(above 50k),its properties are typical of a kondo metal,with metalic electrical conductivity characterised by strong electron scattering.At low temperature, it behaves as a non magnetic insulator.Its insulating behaviour based on Kondo effect. 22-08-2014 8Scattering of conduction electrons in a metal due to magnetic impurities resulting a charateristics change in resistivity with temperature. The effect arises from the interaction between a single magnetic atom such as cobalt,and the many electrons in an otherwise non-magnetic metal.
KONDO EFFECT 22-08-2014 9Such an impurity typically has an intrinsic spin that interact with the electron.It prevents the flow of electrons from being destroyed by irrgularities in the metal structure Making SmB6 a very robust and efficient topological kondo insulator.
