In spintronics, two-dimensional van der Waals crystals constitute a most promising material class for long-distance spin transport or effective spin manipulation at room temperature. To realize all-vdW-material-based spintronic devices, however, vdW materials with itinerant ferromagnetism at room temperature are needed for spin current generation and thereby serve as an effective spin source. We report theoretical design and experimental realization of a iron-based vdW material, Fe4GeTe2, showing a nearly room temperature ferromagnetic order, together with a large magnetization and high conductivity. These properties are well retained even in cleaved crystals down to seven layers, with notable improvement in perpendicular magnetic anisotropy. Our findings highlight Fe4GeTe2 and its nanometer-thick crystals as a promising candidate for spin source operation at nearly room temperature and hold promise to further increase T-c in vdW ferromagnets by theory-guided material discovery.
