Symposium QT02-Low-Dimensional Magnetic Quantum Materials

This symposium will cover recent efforts in engineering, measuring, understanding, and employing magnetism in emerging quantum materials with a focus on reduced dimensionality, which is essential for device applications. The symposium's first part will focus on large-scale thin film and bulk crystals synthesis, new functionalities, and electronic, photonic, and magnetic memory device applications. Contributions on synthesis will discuss recent progress in the growth of magnetic quantum materials such as materials with topologically non-trivial band structures, Kagome materials, magnetic topological insulators, frustrated magnetic systems, and spin textures. Symposium contributions from experimentalists and theoreticians will address challenges in growth and discuss how novel magnetic states in quantum materials can be engineered starting from individual atoms and symmetries. Emerging devices discussed will include proposals for the use of magnetic materials in quantum computations and dissipationless energy transfer, spintronics devices, magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs), and other emerging magnetic devices. Symposium contributions will emphasize how engineering and controlling magnetic states can result in novel device functionalities. The second part of the symposium will bridge synthesis and applications and focus on new frontiers of probing magnetic states within the bulk and in nanoscale materials with high precision. Topics will include measurements of magnetic moments with scanning probe techniques, non-linear optical probes, and emerging applications of transmission electron microscopy for studying magnetic moments with atomic resolution. Contributions exploring the use of in situ probes to examine non-equilibrium states and extreme conditions will also be welcomed. This symposium will bring together a diverse pool of young scientists and established leaders to identify major challenges and opportunities within emerging magnetic quantum materials and devices.

Topics will include:

  • Scalable growth of thin films of magnetic materials, including van der Waals materials, Kagome, and frustrated magnets
  • The growth of layered crystals of magnetic materials, Kagome magnets, magnetic topological insulators, and materials hosting spin textures
  • Measurement and manipulation of magnetism with high precision - atomically resolved scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM), Lorentz TEM, scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), scanning NV-centers, magnetic symmetry probes, ultrafast perturbation and control of magnetism
  • The measurements and manipulation of magnetism in low-dimensional materials, which includes the application of high pressures, high electric fields, and ultrafast excitation techniques.
  • Magnetic devices, novel device concepts, and novel approaches to employ magnetization in energy-efficient storage, reading, and writing
  • New theory developments including magnetic topological materials predictions and high-throughput calculations
