Scientists from the University of Washington and MIT have demonstrated that a monolayer of a two-dimensional material can exhibit an intrinsic magnetism.

    This might seem like the latest in a series of seemingly similar announcements on 2D-material magnetism.However, this latest work differs from the others we’ve covered in that it demonstrates ferrimagnetism in a single layer of a 2D material without the use of an accompanying substrate to provide the magnetism.

Also, here's the Nature article Physicists have finally created a 2D magnet.


Odder:

And theorists everywhere celebrate that we now have a type of magnet that's easy to model.
