EVIDENCE FOR AN EXOTIC HIGH-FIELD SUPERCONDUCTING STATE IN FeSe

By | 2020-07-13T10:55:49+00:00 June 23rd, 2020|SCI Highlights|0 Comments

S. Kasahara, Kyoto University, N. Hussey, HFML Nijmegen, and J. Wosnitza, HLD Dresden. Superconductivity is destroyed at high magnetic fields. Usually, the highest field up to which this state can exist is the Pauli paramagnetic limit, when the Zeeman energy of the itinerant electrons becomes larger than the superconducting [...]

SCAFFOLD-FREE AND LABEL-FREE BIOFABRICATION TECHNOLOGY USING LEVITATIONAL ASSEMBLY IN HIGH MAGNETIC FIELD

By | 2020-06-23T08:55:47+00:00 June 23rd, 2020|SCI Highlights|0 Comments

Hans Engelkamp and Peter Christianen, HFML Nijmegen. This research shows that magnetic levitational bioassembly with a non-toxic, low concentration of a paramagnetic medium in high magnetic field is technologically feasible. Moreover, the experimental results confirm that it can be used as a cost-effective alternative to microgravity research at the [...]

FERMI-SURFACE INSTABILITIES IN THE HEAVY-FERMION SUPERCONDUCTOR UTe2

By | 2020-05-13T13:07:31+00:00 May 13th, 2020|SCI Highlights|0 Comments

Alexandre Pourret, CEA Grenoble and Gabriel Seyfarth, LNCMI-Grenoble. The recently discovered heavy-fermion superconductor UTe2 with superconducting transition temperature of 1.6 K is one of the rare examples of a heavy-fermion material with superconductivity appearing above 1 K. In contrast to the ferromagnetic heavy-fermion superconductors UCoGe and URhGe, UTe2 is [...]

LOCALIZED VERSUS DELOCALIZED 5f ELECTRONS IN ANTIFERROMAGNETIC U2Rh2Sn

By | 2020-03-16T14:36:26+00:00 March 16th, 2020|SCI Highlights|0 Comments

Denis Gorbunov, HLD Dresden. The physical properties of uranium-based intermetallic compounds depend strongly on the degree of localization of the 5f electrons. The extended character of the 5f states leads to a high sensitivity to external parameters. The pronounced spin-orbit interaction of uranium provides significant orbital polarization of the [...]

NMR STUDY OF CHARGE-DENSITY WAVES UNDER HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE IN YBa2Cu3Oy

By | 2020-03-11T12:55:14+00:00 March 11th, 2020|SCI Highlights|0 Comments

Igor Vinograd and Marc-Henri Julien, LNCMI-Grenoble. High-temperature superconductivity in the cuprates arises in close proximity to a charge density wave (CDW) phase. A challenge in the field is to understand how both phenomena compete and whether, behind pure competition, there is a more involved relationship between them. To tackle [...]
