Bauer, Guimaraes, and Van Wees are involved in research led by Toeno van der Sar of TU Delft on a gas of magnetic waves in atomically thin crystals. The project "The two‐dimensional magnon gas in atomically thin magnets" was awarded an NWO XL grant of almost 2 MEuro in total. Recently discovered, atomically-thin magnetic crystals are creating world-wide excitement in physics. Their magnetism is well controllable, offering opportunities for realizing information technology on the smallest scale. This project aims at creating, controlling, and detecting a gas-like state of magnetic waves in these materials, and thereby realize the first two-dimensional magnetic-wave transistor.
Guimaraes and van Wees will both receive funding for PhD students and Guimaraes also budget for equipment.
