Valence-bond revival in magnetism

Researchers bring to light fundamental behavior of intricate magnetic states–quantum spin liquids

18-Apr-2019

Magnets are prone to order. Their basic constituents, individual magnetic moments, tend to align at low temperatures, thus forming “frozen” magnetically ordered states. A minority of magnets break this trend and reveal peculiar characteristics that can be paralleled to a never-freezing (quantum) ...

How magnetic fields can fix crystal twinning

01-Feb-2018

In many cases, it is important to be able to take measurements along different directions in the crystal lattice in order to study the physical properties of new materials, such as high-temperature superconductors. However, this requires single crystals without so-called twin domains, i.e., ...

Cooling towards absolute zero using super-heavy electrons

New quantum material significantly improves adiabatic demagnetization cooling

13-Sep-2016

To reach temperatures closely above absolute zero at −273.16 °C the demagnetization of magnetic materials under adiabatic, i.e., thermally insulated, conditions is utilized. Up to now, diluted magnetic salts have been used for this purpose. Researchers from Augsburg, Göttingen, Kyoto and Iowa ...

Controlling Electromagnetic Radiation by Graphene

30-Nov-2015

A collaborative international team consisting of two experimental groups, led by Professor Geoffrey Nash from the University of Exeter and Professor Jérôme Faist from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, and of a theoretical group of Privatdozent Dr. Sergey Mikhailov from the ...

Cocktail achieves superconducting boost

Scientists have now developed a high-performance material by mixing iron and selenium

02-Nov-2012

Physicists describe how they have synthesized a new material that belongs to the iron-selenide class of superconductors, called LixFe2Se2(NH3)y, in a paper about to be published in EPJ B. The work was carried out by Ernst-Wilhelm Scheidt from the University of Augsburg and colleagues. This ...

Physicists make electron gas visible

08-Jul-2009

X-rays can be used to image hidden structures such as bones of the human body. But now, a team of Würzburg physicists has succeeded in demonstrating the electronic structure of an interface in a solid for the first time. Why should such interfaces be researched? "They are important for the ...

How Crystal Becomes a Conductor

07-Feb-2008

Squeeze a crystal of manganese oxide hard enough, and it changes from an electrical insulator to a conductive metal. In a report published by the journal Nature Materials, researchers use computational modeling to show why this happens. The results represent an advance in computer modeling of ...

2006 Agilent Technologies Europhysics Prize awarded for theory that explains properties of materials

10-Mar-2006

Agilent Technologies Inc. today announced that the European Physical Society (EPS) has awarded the 2006 Agilent Europhysics Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Condensed Matter Physics to four scientists for their development and application of the Dynamical Mean Field Theory, which explains ...
