One of the most exciting recent developments in quantum materials is the discovery and characterization of magnetism and superconductivity in exfoliated single-layer materials. These developments pave the way for an enormous influx of new quantum materials designed layer by layer through mechanical stacking. Today, given the dramatic advances in nano-characterization tools driven primarily by the study of graphene, the science of 2D quantum materials is poised to advance very quickly. In this Special Topic, we will survey the recent developments in this fast-moving field and provide some perspectives on where the field is likely to go over the next five years.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Superconductivity in 2D materials and vdW heterostructures
- Intrinsic magnetism in 2D materials and vdW heterostructures
- Proximity-induced magnetism or superconductivity in 2D materials
- Manipulation of 2D magnetism or superconductivity by strain, gating, and doping
- Applications of 2D magnetic or superconducting materials

Submission and acceptance criteria:
Manuscripts considered for publication as Articles in Journal of Applied Physics are expected to meet the journal’s standard of acceptance, i.e. to report on original and timely results that significantly advance understanding in the current status of contemporary applied physics: material that is exclusively review in nature is not considered for publication. Manuscripts submitted for consideration in this Special Topic must meet the same criteria and will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process. The Journal of Applied Physics’ Editors’ Team will issue final decisions on the submitted manuscripts.
