Scientists Have Discovered The First 2D Magnet | IFLScience

Researchers from the University of Washington and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have discovered a two-dimensional magnetized material for the first time.
As reported in Nature, the material known as chromium triiodide (CrI3) is highly magnetic even when it’s in a 2D configuration (sheet with one atom thickness). In addition the construction of this monolayer is surprisingly simple.

Said in a statement: “We envision that new information technologies may emerge based on these new 2D magnets.”
