2D insulators with ferromagnetism are uncommon; scientists simply distinguished a new one

Teaming up researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory, Brookhaven National Laboratory, and Princeton University have found a new layered ferromagnetic semiconductor, an uncommon kind of material that holds extraordinary guarantee for next-generation electronic technologies. As the name suggests, semiconductors are the Goldilocks of electrically conductive materials- – not a metal, and not…
