Cr2Ge2Te6 is a ferromagnetic insulator, with a Curie temperature of 61 K and is an insulator below T <100K. The layers are stacked together via van der Waals interactions and can be exfoliated into thin 2D layers. CrGeTe3 is a trichalcogenide.
The Cr2Ge2Te6 crystals produced at HQ Graphene have a typical lateral size of ~0.2-0.3 cm, and have a metallic appearance.
