Magnets with a twist: U-M researchers engineer magnetic complexity into atomically thin magnets
Magnets are used in so many of our everyday objects including cell phones and in the strip of a credit card or a hotel key. They even power the engine in your vacuum. And as most computers use magnets to store information, finding ever thinner magnets is key to faster, lighter electronics.
