The isolation of two-dimensional magnetic materials has opened a new path toward the design of ultrathin magnetic devices and the study of exotic phases. This line of research has become a hot topic within the field of condensed matter physics, attracting researchers from the fields of magnetism, two-dimensional materials, and spintronics. These materials offer the possibility of bringing magnetism down to the ultimate (atomically thin) thickness. This is crucial for continuing the progress and downscaling of magnetic devices, such as nonvolatile memory devices, as well as opening the door to new and disruptive device concepts. However, there are several aspects that limit the application and progress in the field, such as low Curie and Neél temperatures of the 2D magnetic materials, their degradation under experimental conditions, and issues with large-scale fabrication, to name a few.
In this Lorentz Center Workshop, we plan to gather experts within the field of two-dimensional (magnetic) materials, to find and open new research lines in the field, discuss open issues, and propose alternatives for going beyond the state-of-the-art. During the Workshop, different topics related to the fundamental aspects, fabrication and characterization, and future applications of magnetic 2D materials will be discussed with the aim to propose and write the future European roadmap for these materials.
