Bauer, Guimaraes, and van Wees partner in consortium receiving an NWO XL grant

27 July 2022

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‚Äźdimensional 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.
