2D Magnetic Semiconductor 

Thesis Defense in Chemistry

Presented by Avalon Dismukes, Roy Group

The evolution of electronics has become the staple thrust of modern scientific innovation: a need for advancing materials engineered for our equally rapidly advancing needs and computing requirements has fueled recent wealth of new materials. Two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals materials with in-plane anisotropy are of great interest for application by directional transport of charge and energy — intrinsically magnetic ones are in even greater need. This presentation will describe my work on chromium sulfide bromide (CrSBr) as a two-dimensional A-type antiferromagnetic material. Its chemical, magnetic, and electronic characterization is described in concert with exploring hidden low temperature magnetic mechanisms.
