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 ...

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 ...

Is CO2 the New Fossil Fuel?

A Closed Carbon Cycle for the Chemical Industry

17-May-2019

The heat-trapping gas carbon dioxide, or CO2 for short, is responsible for global warming. In order to instead exploit this carbon material's potential and thereby minimize its effects, CO2-emissions can be recycled and utilized to manufacture high-quality products. By capturing waste CO2 from ...

Soft magnetic material characterizations get a harder look

15-Nov-2017

In motors, generators and similar electric machines, the electrical current that powers them generates magnetic fields that magnetize some of the metallic components. Choosing the right magnetic material is crucial for designing efficient machines, so researchers from the Institute of Electrical ...
