…Tungsten di-telluride (WTe2) has recently proven to be a promising material for the realization of topological states…

…Physicists at Forschungszentrum Jülich have now been able to understand for the first time how the topological properties of multilayer WTe­2 systems can be changed systematically by means of studies under a scanning tunneling microscope…

…These are regarded as the key to novel “spintronic” devices and quantum computers of the future due to their unique electronic properties…
