Twisted layers of MoS₂ enable the engineering of novel states of matter

“These twisted materials are fascinating as they can be used to engineer novel electronic properties with unprecedented flexibility“

28-Sep-2021

A team of researchers from Germany, China and the United States has discovered that two twisted layers of MoS₂ can be used to control kinetic energy scales in solids. In addition to using the twist angle to control the material’s electronic properties, the researchers have also now demonstrated ...

Magnetic field turns handed superconductor into liquid crystal-like nematic state

16-Sep-2021

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg and RWTH Aachen University have suggested a surprising connection between the nematic behavior of a superconductor in a magnetic field — a state that resembles liquid crystals used in LCDs — and its ...

Trapped photons make strontium titanate ferroelectric

02-Aug-2021

Photons trapped in a cavity can cause a crystal known as strontium titanate (SrTiO₃) to become ferroelectric, according to a new study by the MPSD’s theory group. The photons that are randomly created and destructed in the vacuum of a cavity – as determined by the laws of quantum mechanics – can ...

Important new insights into a key process for the development of more efficient solar cells

09-Jul-2021

The efficiency of solar cells can be significantly increased with a certain physical effect. A research team has now observed in detail for the first time how molecular movements influence this effect. Researchers from the Fritz Haber Institute (FHI) in Berlin, the Max Planck Institute for the ...

New approach to calculate electron traffic jam in transition metal dichalcogenide

21-May-2021

Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg and the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) in South Korea have found that the existing method to calculate a particular insulating state produces errors and suggest a new ...

Towards reproducible science with Jupyter Notebooks

11-May-2021

Software plays a key role in modern science. Experiments that produce large amounts of data generally need substantial software-based analysis to extract understanding. Simulation-based research in particular yields results based solely on the computer-based generation of data and its subsequent ...

Lighting it up: fast material manipulation through a laser

23-Apr-2021

Researchers from the Physical Chemistry Department of the Fritz Haber Institute and the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg have found out that ultrafast switches in material properties can be prompted by laser pulses – and why. This knowledge may enable new ...

Pathbreaking advance: Short flashes of light with sustaining impact

09-Feb-2021

Superconductivity – the ability of a material to transmit an electric current without loss – is a quantum effect that, despite years of research, is still limited to very low temperatures. Now a team of scientists at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in ...

Scientists dramatically enhance the achievable resolution at free-electron lasers with a new technique

20-Jan-2021

Hard X-ray free-electron lasers (XFELs) have delivered intense, ultrashort X-ray pulses for over a decade. One of the most promising applications of XFELs is in biology, where researchers can capture images down to the atomic scale even before the radiation damage destroys the sample. In physics ...

Groundbreaking method to map the interaction between atomically thin layers

18-Jan-2021

When two atomically thin layers of a material are stacked and twisted slightly on top of one another, they can develop radically different properties. They may become superconducting or even develop magnetic or electronic properties due to the interaction of their two layers. The challenge for ...
