June 2020: A Cornell team led by KIC members Kin Fai Mak and Jie Shan has developed a new imaging technique that is fast and sensitive enough to observe elusive critical spin fluctuations in two-dimensional magnets. This real-time imaging allows researchers to control the fluctuations and switch magnetism via a “passive” mechanism that could eventually lead to more energy-efficient magnetic storage devices. Read more about the project on the Cornell Chronicle.
