Sizable orbital moment revealed in 2D magnets

Our group used a unique capability of the X-ray magnetic circular dichroism technique to determine the magnetic orbital moment component of Vanadium ions in the layered van der Waals system VI3. We have revealed an exceptionally sizable orbital moment of V3+ ion resolving the long debate on this issue.
