New insights into high-temperature superconductors

Prof. Dr. Kim Lefman, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen

After 30 years of research, there are still many unsolved puzzles about high-temperature superconductors - among them is the magnetic “stripe order” found in some cuprate superconductors. A Danish research team has taken a closer look at these stripes, using high-resolution neutron scattering at the spectrometers FLEXX (HZB) and ThALES (ILL, Grenoble). Their results, now published in Physical Review Letters, challenge the common understanding of stripe order, and may contribute to unveil the true nature of high-temperature superconductivity.

Wolfram-Prandl-Prize
Wolfram-Prandl-Prize for young scientists in neutron research

The Committee Research with Neutrons (KFN) will award the Wolfram-Prandl-Price for young scientists with PhD again at the SNI2016 in September 2018. The price is awarded for excellent work, which is based mainly on investigations with neutrons. Proposals are to be sent to the head of KFN, Astrid Schneidewind, until May 14, 2018. Proposals should contain a justification (1-2 pages), curriculum vitae, a list of publications and a copy of the PhD-certificate. The documents should be sent as files to Astrid.Schneidewind@frm2.tum.de with reference "Wolfram Prandl Price". [more] [archive]

MLZ
Stronger user position at MLZ: representatives elected for three years

In January 2018, the MLZ User Committee was established. It represents the MLZ users in official meetings, offers a discussion forum within the MLZ users community, and reports to the MLZ directors on new strategic ideas and procedures for a continuous improvement of the MLZ users satisfaction.
