Anatoliy Senyshyn received the Wolfram-Prandl-Prize

WPP-Senyshyn

On 21st of September 2016 Dr. Anatoliy Senyshyn (TUM) has received the Wolfram-Prandl-Prize 2016 of the Komitee für Forschung mit Neutronen during the German Neutron Scattering Conference DN2016. The Wolfram Prandl Award 2016 is given to Dr. Anatoliy Senyshyn for his outstanding research on operando studies of Li-ion batteries, which has greatly enhanced our understanding of the fatigue mechanisms in such devices. The price is awarded by the KFN to young scientist for excellent work which is based mainly on the methods of neutron scattering.[more] [archive]

JCNS-videos demonstrate quantum mechanics and neutron scattering

JCNS-Neutronenfilm

Quantum mechanics is one of the central pillars of modern physics. This mathematically complex theory which allows the properties and laws of matter to be described is, however, rather to understand intuitively. The videos clarify fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics using neutron scattering experiments from research undertaken at the Jülich institute. The videos are around 5 and 4 minutes in length respectively, and are appropriate for use in an introductory lecture course in quantum mechanics or for self-study purposes. Video 1 looks at the topics of quantization, quantum phase transitions and scattering at lattices; Video 2 deals in more detail with quantum phase transitions. [more] [archive]

Neutrons Verify New Quantum State

An international research team has proved the existence of spin-spirals in a quantum liquid.


An international research team has proved the existence of spin-spirals in a quantum liquid. They emerge at low temperatures from the magnetic moments ("spins") of manganese scandium thiospinel single crystals (MnSc2S4). Neighbouring spins fluctuate here collectively as spirals, but when spatial distances are involved, they do not take on any particular order, just as water molecules will only form structures with neighbouring water molecules.

Nobel Prize in Physics for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter: neutron experiments confirm

David J. Thouless, F. Duncan M. Haldane and J. Michael Kosterlitz

The award-winning work of David J. Thouless, F. Duncan M. Haldane and J. Michael Kosterlitz served as the theoretical underpinning of the science of quantum topology. It is being recognised now largely due to validation provided by experiments performed at neutron sources over the last 25 years. That research has led to advances in the understanding of fields as diverse as superconductivity, lasers, superfluids and thin magnetic films. [more] [archive]
