High-entropy Topological Kagome Magnet highlight slide

What Has Been Achieved: A new family of Kagome magnets that exploits high entropy of the magnetic cations to create new magnetic transitions not previously observed. 

Importance of the Achievement: The stabilization of these new types of magnetic transition through the incorporation of disorder on the magnetic cation site of the lattice provides a new way to engineer magnetic properties in systems with topological bandstructure effects. 

Unique Feature(s) of the MRSEC/PREM that Enabled this Achievement: Trans-disciplinary interactions across physics and materials engineering to bring high-entropy concepts to a new class of materials.
