The magnetic component present within the memory devices available today is typically created from magnetic thin films. However, at the atomic level, the thin films are still required to be 3 Dimensional which means hundreds of thousand thicker than 2 Dimensional. For a long time, scientists have invested efforts in developing an approach to create thinner and smaller 2D magnets which would ensure that data is stored at a much higher density.
Now, researchers have managed to develop an ultrathin magnate with the ability to operate at room temperature. The innovation could lead to great advancement in the Computing Electronics Market with the development of new applications in computing as well as electronics such as high-density, spintronic memory devices. Further, it could become a new tool in the study of quantum physics, resulting in the creation of next-generation memories, quantum physics, computing, and spintronics.
The new tool is a first of its kind, as is a room-temperature 2D magnet that is chemically stable within normal conditions. The discovery is immensely exciting as the team has not only managed to build a 2D magnet but also unveiled a novel mechanism that could help realize 2D magnetic materials.
The new magnets require extremely low temperatures for functioning. However, for practical reasons, a data center would still run at room temperature. The team stated that theoretically, the smaller the size of the magnet, the larger should be the disc’s ability for data density. Thus, the new magnet could potentially do wonders as it is as thin as a single atom.
The researchers further added that their innovative discovery could ensure the opening of new windows in relation to quantum physics. The atomically thin magnet provides a powerful platform for exploring and investigating the quantum world. The feat could possibly open each atom for examination, thus, leading to findings on how quantum physics governs single magnetic atoms and their in-between interactions. Availability of a magnet consisting of conventional bulk within which most magnetic atoms are deeply embedded inside the material, such form of studies would be a challenging task to accomplish.
The magnet is special and can be bent in almost all sorts of shapes without breaking. In addition, it is one-millionth the thickness of a single paper. Thus, it could help develop a new technology that makes use of the electron’s spin’s orientation instead of its charge for encoding data. The 2D magnet might even facilitate the formation of ultra-compact spintronic devices for engineering the electrons’ spins.
