Researchers control elusive spin fluctuations in 2D magnets

Professor Jie Shan and Associate Professor Kin Fai Mak co-author recent paper in Nature Materials: “Imaging and Control of Critical Fluctuations in Two-Dimensional Magnets". 

Professor Jie Shan and Associate Professor Kin Fai Mak co-author recent paper on a new real-time imaging technique that is fast and sensitive enough to observe elusive critical fluctuations in two-dimensional magnets. This technique allows researchers to control the fluctuations and switch magnetism via a “passive” mechanism that could eventually lead to more energy-efficient magnetic storage devices. The team’s paper, “Imaging and Control of Critical Fluctuations in Two-Dimensional Magnets,” published June 8 in Nature Materials.
