Seed: THz magnetic switching of intercalated transition metal dichalcogenides (I-TMDs)

A grand challenge in the field of ultrafast manipulation of magnetism is to coherently switch magnetic order in materials at THz speeds. Directly coupling an intense THz wave to a material of interest is a promising approach yet challenging since this requires THz waves with extremely large field strengths. To address this, new magnetic materials that can be switched at lower fields need to be synthesized and studied. Moreover, new heterostructures involving metallic antennas are required that can potentially enhance THz field strengths.
