Spintronics: Exotic ferromagnetic order in two-dimensions

An international team has detected an unusual ferromagnetic property in a two-dimensional system, known as 'easy-plane anisotropy.' This could foster new energy efficient information technologies based on spintronics for data storage, among other things. The thinnest materials in the world are only a single atom thick. These kinds of two-dimensional or 2D materials -- such…
