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. [...]

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 [...]
