Directly after the opening of the new combined building the first HFML-FELIX User Meeting took place. Local research groups, external users and other interested scientists exchanged experiences and the latest scientific news. The aim was to bring the high field and free electron laser communities together and inform both [...]
The combined building of the HFML and the FELIX Laboratory has been officially opened on July 8, 2019. Ingrid van Engelshoven, Minister of Education, Culture and Science, officiated the opening. From left to right: Prof. Han van Krieken (Rector, RU), Dr. Britta Redlich (Director FELIX Laboratory), Minister Ingrid van [...]
Denis Gorbunov, HLD Dresden. Intermetallic compounds based on 3d and 4f elements combine high magnetic ordering temperatures, typical of 3d metals, and the large magnetic anisotropy of the magnetic rare-earths elements. The application of external magnetic fields tunes the exchange and anisotropy interactions and frequently leads to field-induced transitions. [...]
MAGNETIC-FIELD-INDUCED METAMAGNETISM AND REENTRANT SUPERCONDUCTIVITY IN THE HEAVY-FERMION SUPERCONDUCTOR UTe2
William Knafo, Marc Nardone (LNCMI Toulouse), Sanu Mishra (LNCMI Grenoble) and Georg Knebel (CEA-Grenoble). Following the recent discovery of superconductivity in the heavy-fermion paramagnet UTe2, which is suspected to lie on the verge of ferromagnetism [S. Ran et al., arXiv:1811.11808v3, D. Aoki et al., J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. 88 [...]
Nigel Hussey, HFML Nijmegen. It is not only elemental or ordinary metals that superconduct. Today, scientists are also fascinated by strange metals that undergo phase transitions (e.g. to a magnetic state) before superconductivity sets in. If they find the right tuning knob, scientists can suppress the temperature at which [...]
Steffen Wiedmann, HFML Nijmegen. In 2017 and 2018, two PhD students from Brazil came to Nijmegen to do a part of their post-graduate program at the EMFL facility in Nijmegen. They obtained a one-year PhD fellowship from the Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES). Thanks to [...]
Scientist at HFML Nijmegen. During my two-year post-doctoral stay at the HFML, I will continuemy research that I started at the high magnetic field lab LNCMI in Toulouse. There, I studied novel aperiodic quantum oscillations in the two-dimensional electron gas that exists at the interface between two insulating oxides. [...]
