This diagram shows the layered structure analyzed for its magnetic properties. Yellow spheres represent tellurium atoms; light blue spheres represent antimony-bismuth; and black spheres represent sulfur. The black sphere with an arrow represents an atom of dopant, and green spheres with arrows show atoms of europium. Different colored arrows show various ways an europium ion can be affected by the interface between the materials: within the plane via Heisenberg interaction (orange), between the planes (gree
Findings could lead to a building block for future quantum computers, and a research tool for physics.
