2D Quantum Materials: Magnetism and Superconductivity
One of the most exciting recent developments in quantum materials is the discovery and characterization of magnetism and superconductivity in exfoliated single-layer materials. These developments pave the way for an enormous influx of new quantum materials designed layer by layer through mechanical stacking. Today, given the dramatic advances in nano-characterization tools driven primarily by the study of graphene, the science of 2D quantum materials is poised to advance very quickly. In this Special Topic, we will survey the recent developments in this fast-moving field and provide some perspectives on where the field is likely to go over the next five years.
