In this work, we investigate the strain controllability of magnetic anisotropy energy (MAE) in the monolayer form of niobium disulfide (NbS2) using density functional theory (DFT). Our calculation reveals a negative MAE of -1.82 meV, indicating a preference for spins to align in the in-plane directions (x or y). By systematically applying biaxial tensile strain to the NbS2 monolayer, ranging from 1% to 10%, we observe a linear relationship between strain and MAE. Interestingly, the strain-induced modulation of MAE leads to a remarkable phenomenon, where the easy axis of magnetization shifts from the in-plane to an out-of-plane orientation at a critical strain of 7%. This ability to switch the magnetic anisotropy by manipulating strain demonstrates the promising potential of NbS2 monolayer in the development of spintronic devices.
