Three-dimensional magnetic critical behavior in ${\mathrm{CrI}}_{3}$


Author(s): Yu Liu (刘育) and C. Petrovic

Low-dimensional intrinsically ferromagnetic semiconductors are rare and crucial to develop the next-generation spintronics devices. CrI3 is a promising candidate since its ferromagnetism can be maintained upon exfoliating of bulk crystals down to single layer. However, the nature of magnetism in bulk CrI3 is still unclear. Here, the authors experimentally study the critical properties of bulk CrI3 around the paramagnetic to ferromagnetic phase transition, and idenify clearly three-dimensional long-range magnetic coupling with the exchange distance decaying as J(r)r4.69 in bulk CrI3.

Influence of the effective layer thickness on the ground-state and excitonic properties of transition-metal dichalcogenide systems


Author(s): L. Meckbach, T. Stroucken, and S. W. Koch

The effective dimensionality of a semiconductor strongly influences its excitonic properties. Due to their unit-cell thickness, monolayer materials are the almost perfect realization of a two-dimensional system. However, the unit-cell dimensions can easily exceed the nominal value of the exciton Bohr radius. Employing a fully microscopic theory based on the equation-of-motion approach, it is shown that the effective finite-layer thickness in transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) is responsible for the observed nonhydrogenic exciton series, not only in monolayers, but also in few-layer and bulk systems. The theoretical results identify the resonances in bulk TMDCs as due to quasi-two-dimensional intra- and interlayer excitons.

Environmentally sensitive theory of electronic and optical transitions in atomically thin semiconductors


Author(s): Yeongsu Cho and Timothy C. Berkelbach

Due to their small size, atomically thin materials are expected to exhibit electronic properties that are highly sensitive to their environment. However, atomically thin semiconductors on a variety of substrates, as well as in their bulk layered phase, exhibit an absorption onset at roughly the same energy. The authors provide a semianalytic theory of the quasiparticle band gap in atomically thin semiconductors and show that environment-induced changes are almost exactly canceled by changes in the exciton binding energy, leaving the absorption onset nearly constant. The presented theory sets limits on the prospect of environmental engineering in atomically thin materials.

Theory of the magnetic skyrmion glass

Magnetic skyrmions discovered in chiral magnets show unique physical properties due to their nontrivial topology. While their basic properties have been well understood for pure systems, in real materials there is always disorder from, for example, crystal defects or impurities. This glassy nature substantially modifies the low-energy behavior, and hence the investigation of the skyrmion glass is crucial to understanding real materials. Here, the authors theoretically study disordered chiral magnets in terms of replica field theory, and provide a firm basis to explore the glassy state of magnetic skyrmions.
