Scalable fabrication of magnetic 2D materials and heterostructures constitutes a crucial step for scaling down current spintronic devices and the development of novel spintronic applications. Here, we report on van der Waals (vdW) epitaxy of the layered magnetic metal Fe3GeTe2 (FGT)—a 2D crystal with highly tunable properties and a high prospect for room temperature ferromagnetism (FM)—directly on graphene by employing molecular beam epitaxy. Morphological and structural characterization… Expand

Gate-tunable room-temperature ferromagnetism in two-dimensional Fe3GeTe2

Influence of Proximity to Supporting Substrate on van der Waals Epitaxy of Atomically Thin Graphene/hexagonal Boron Nitride Heterostructures.
It is demonstrated that the additional graphene layer in BLG enhances the distance to the corrugated, carbon-rich interface of the supporting SiC substrate and thereby diminishes its influence on the van der Waals epitaxy, leading to a homogeneous formation of a smooth, atomically thin heterostructure, which will be crucial for a scalable device integration of 2D heterostructures.
