Physicists at Hamburg and Kiel University and the Forschungszentrum JÃ¼lich have found for the first time a regular lattice of magnetic skyrmions â€“ cycloidal vortex spin structures of exceptional stability â€“ on a surface.
A new source of very cold electrons will improve the quality and speed of nanoimaging for drug and materials development, to a trillionth of a second.
Physicists at Forschungszentrum JÃ¼lich and the universities of Kiel and Hamburg are the first to discover a regular lattice of stable magnetic skyrmions â€“ radial spiral structures made up of atomic-scale spins â€“ on a surface instead of in bulk materials.
Although high-temperature superconductors are widely used in technologies such as MRI machines, explaining the unusual properties of these materials remains an unsolved problem for theoretical physicists.
New multiferroic mechanism could lead to next-generation memory and sensing devices.
A violation of one of the oldest empirical laws of physics has been observed by scientists at the University of Bristol.
If there were a Hall of Fame for materials, manganites would be among its members.
Scientists have taken one step closer to the next generation of computers.
At the smallest scales, magnetism may not work quite the way scientists expected, according to a recent paper in Physical Review Letters by Rafal Oszwaldowski and Igor Zutic of the University at Buffalo and Andre Petukhov of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology.
