A switchable 2D ferromagnet

University of Groningen physicists have induced magnetism in platinum with an electric field created by a paramagnetic ionic liquid. As only the surface of the platinum is affected, this creates a switchable 2D ferromagnet. The study was published in Science Advances on 6 April. Platinum is used a lot in jewellery and electronics. Although this precious metal Read more about A switchable 2D ferromagnet[…]
