The EMFL annual report 2018 is available online. You can download it here.
Users that have visited the EMFL facility in Nijmegen the past year have witnessed the construction of new offices and meeting rooms between HFML and the adjacent FELIX Laboratory. When this EMFL news comes out, all the work is done and HFML is coupled to FELIX. If you now [...]
Nigel Hussey, HFML Nijmegen.Experimental physicist Nigel Hussey has received a prestigious € 2.5 million grant from the European Research Council (ERC) to study the flow of charge in exotic metals and superconductors under extreme conditions. The ultimate goal is to understand superconductivity and create a pathway towards room-temperature superconductors.Hussey: ”This [...]
Sergei Zvyagin, HLD Dresden. Spin-1/2 triangular-lattice Heisenberg antiferromagnets represent one of the most important classes of frustrated quantum magnets, demonstrating a complex interplay between geometrical frustration, quantum fluctuations, and magnetic order. In spite of their simple magnetic structures (Figure, inset), they possess highly unusual magnetic properties and a very [...]
Yo Tokunaga, JAEA Tokai, Nicolas Bruyant, LNCMI-Toulouse, and Ilya Sheikin, LNCMI-Grenoble. Heavy-fermion materials exhibit a diverse range of fascinating phenomena including quantum phase transition (QPTs), non-Fermiliquid behavior, and novel states of matter such as unconventional superconductivity. The application of high magnetic fields often induces additional phase transitions, such as [...]
Sergio Pezzini, Steffen Wiedmann, Uli Zeitler, HFML Nijmegen. Two-dimensional layers of graphene and hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) both have a honeycomb atomic structure, with a slight lattice mismatch of 1.8 %. When placing graphene on top of hBN one forms a so-called moiré pattern, with a large periodicity of [...]
Jung-bin Song, X. Chaud, F. Debray, LNCMI-Grenoble and P. Fazilleau, T. Lécrevisse, CEA Saclay. The High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) team at LNCMI has set a new world record by producing a magnetic field of 32.5 T for a period of several minutes. With this, EMFL is paving the way [...]
LNCMI Grenoble. After a Master’s degree in chemistry and materials science at the University of Evry Val d’Essonne near Paris, I had the opportunity to do a PhD in materials science co-supervised by the Materials and Processes Science and Engineering Laboratory (SIMaP) in Grenoble and the Multi-Scale Additive Manufacturing [...]
