Scientists make a surprising discovery about magnetic defects in topological insulators

Friday, June 9, 2023 - 11:54 in Physics & Chemistry

Scientists from the Department of Energy's Ames National Laboratory made an intriguing discovery while characterizing the magnetism in a dilute magnetic topological insulator. Despite this material's ferromagnetism, they discovered strong antiferromagnetic interactions between some pairs of magnetic defects that play a key role in several families of magnetic topological insulators.
