Graduate student Wenbo Ge in Prof. Wu's group, along with collaborators, has discovered surface spin-flip transition in an antiferromagnetic topological insulator

Sept 2, 2022

In collaboration with Prof. Vanderbilt's group and Dr. Yan from ORNL, graduate student Wenbo Ge in the research group of Professor Weida Wu directly visualized the long-sought surface spin-flip transition in natural superlattice antiferromagnet MnBi4Te7, one of the antiferromagnetic topological insulators.
