Chromium Sulfide Bromide Nanoscale Devices

Chromium sulfide bromide crystallizes into thin layers that can be peeled apart and stacked to create nanoscale devices. Columbia researchers discovered that this material’s electronic and magnetic properties are linked together—a discovery that could enable fundamental research as well as potential applications in spintronics.

“CrSBr is infinitely easier to work with than other 2D magnets, which lets us fabricate novel devices and test their properties,” said Evan Telford, a postdoc in the Roy lab who graduated with a PhD in physics from Columbia in 2020.
