Two-dimensional copper oxide.
Two-dimensional copper oxide is a two-dimensional material like graphene, but unlike the latter is not hexagonal and square structure.
One of the unique properties of two-dimensional copper oxide is the antiferromagnetism (low magnetization), the copper oxide does not show under any circumstances. This property may have promising application in microelectronics. It allows an order to reduce magnetic devices for recording information. So, to record one bit of information on the traditional materials are used hundreds of thousands of atoms, and to record one bit of information to the antiferromagnet will need a total of 12 atoms.
Two-dimensional copper oxide is produced by “self-Assembly” in another two – dimensional material – graphene.
