Novel forms of magnetism in 2D transition metal dichalcogenides

Project description

Research could reveal how magnetism arises in strongly correlated 2D materials

Two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD) are an emerging class of materials with unique optical and electronic properties that render them suitable for fundamental studies and applications ranging from nanoelectronics and sensing to energy storage. Enhanced electronic correlations make such materials express different types of magnetism. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the MAGTMD project will study how magnetic order arises in certain strongly correlated TMD materials and how it interacts with other electronic phases. By using ultra-low temperature scanning tunnelling microscopy and spectroscopy, researchers will focus on TMD materials that are both magnetic and superconductive, as well as those that host a half-metal state and those that display magnetism generated by atomic vacancies.
