Distinct magneto-Raman signatures of spin-flip phase transitions in CrI3

August 3, 2020
Amber D. McCreary, Thuc T. Mai, Franz Utermohlen, Jeffrey R. Simpson, Kevin F. Garrity, Xiaozhou Feng, Dmitry Shcherbakov, Yanglin Zhu, Jin Hu, Daniel Weber, Kenji Watanabe, Takashi Taniguchi, Joshua Goldberger, Zhiqiang Mao, Chun Ning Lau, Yuanming Lu, Nandini Trivedi, Rolando Valdes Aguilar, Angela R. Hight Walker
The discovery of 2-dimensional (2D) materials, such as CrI3, that retain magnetic ordering down to monolayer thickness, and even more have layer-dependent magnetic properties has led to a plethora of research in 2D magnetism. Here, we report a magneto

Quasi-two-dimensional magnon identification in antiferromagnetic FePS3 via magneto-Raman spectroscopy

February 18, 2020
Amber D. McCreary, Jeffrey R. Simpson, Thuc T. Mai, Robert D. McMichael, Jason E. Douglas, Nicholas P. Butch, Cindi L. Dennis, Rolando Valdes Aguilar, Angela R. Hight Walker
Recently it was discovered that van der Waals-bonded magnets retain long range magnetic ordering even down to a monolayer thickness, opening many avenues in fundamental physics and potential applications of these fascinating materials. One example is FePS3

Polarization-resolved Raman spectroscopy of \alpha-RuCl3 and evidence of room temperature two-dimensional magnetic scattering

October 14, 2019
Thuc T. Mai, Amber D. McCreary, P. Lampen-Kelley, Nicholas P. Butch, Jeffrey R. Simpson, J.-Q. Yan, S. E. Nagler, D. Mandrus, Angela R. Hight Walker, Rolando Valdes Aguilar
Polarization-resolved Raman spectroscopy was performed and analyzed from large, high quality, mono-domain single crystal of \alpha-RuCl3, a proximate Kitaev quantum spin liquid. Spectra were collected with laser polarizations parallel and perpendicular to

Raman Imaging of Surface and Sub-Surface Graphene Oxide in Fiber Reinforced Polymer Nanocomposites

March 1, 2019
Amber D. McCreary, Qi An, Aaron M. Forster, Kunwei Liu, Siyao He, Chris Macosko, Andreas Stein, Angela R. Hight Walker
The incorporation of nanofillers, such as graphene oxide (GO) into fiber reinforced polymer composites to improve their mechanical properties is a significant research area for a variety of industrial applications. However, to date there is no reliable

Phase Modulators Based on High Mobility Ambipolar ReSe2 Field-Effect Transistors

August 24, 2018
Nihar Pradhan, Carlos Garcia, Bridget Isenberg, Daniel Rhodes, Simin Feng, Shariar Memaran, Yan Xin, Amber McCreary, Angela R. Hight Walker, Aldo Raeliarijaona, Humberto Terrones, Mauricio Terrones, Steve McGill, Luis Balicas
We fabricated ambipolar field-effect transistors (FETs) from multi-layered triclinic ReSe2, mechanically exfoliated onto a SiO2 layer grown on p-doped Si. In contrast to previous reports on thin layers (2 to 3 layers), we extract field-effect carrier

Intricate Resonant Raman Response in Anisotropic ReS2

August 18, 2017
Amber McCreary, Jeffrey R. Simpson, Yuanxi Wang, Daniel Rhodes, Kazunori Fujisawa, Luis Balicas, Madan Dubey, Vincent H. Crespi, M. Terrones, Angela R. Hight Walker
Rhenium disulfide is an exciting material due to its strong in-plane anisotropy, thus offering an additional physical parameter that can be tuned for advanced applications. ReS2 provides a major advantage for optoelectronics as it is both stable in air and
