The HiMagGraphene project is controlling magnetism in graphene with hydrogen atoms


In the image above are shown magnetic moments are formed when hydrogen atoms bond to carbon atoms in the honeycomb graphene lattice. The honeycomb lattice comprises two sublattices, and the moments align ferromagnetically (blue) when on the same sublattice and antiferromagnetically (orange) when on the opposing sublattice.
