In a new normal after the pandemic as well as in the era of AI and trillion sensors, data traffic and related energy consumption will grow exponentially. Thus, for global sustainable development, a revolution in materials science is needed to lay the foundations for information technology that operates at a much faster speed and much lower power consumption than now. By introducing “topology” in spintronics, the project discovered a new class of materials that enables such a revolution.
