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.

Exploring superconductivity

The recent discovery of superconductivity in the heavy-fermion paramagnet UTe2 has attracted a lot of attention, particularly due to the reinforcement of superconductivity near quantum phase transitions induced by magnetic field and/or pressure. The magnetic properties of UTe2 are, thus, associated to its unusual superconducting properties.
