In addition to manipulating the charge or spin of electrons, another way to control electric current is by using the 'valley' degree-of-freedom of electrons. The first demonstration of the generation, transport and detection of valley-polarized electrons in bulk diamond now opens up new opportunities for quantum control in electronic devices.
