Neutrons Verify New Quantum State


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.

New neutron graduate school in Sweden: 10 open PhD positions

SwedNess is a graduate school for neutron scattering operated by six of Sweden’s largest academic institutions/universities. The school is fully funded by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) and aims to educate a new generation of highly skilled neutron experts. The research projects cover a broad range of scientific fields of high interest for both academia and industry. Within SwedNess the focus will be on excellence in science, high-level education as well as national- and international networking, which includes hands-on training at facilities around the world. Deadline for applications is Feb. 14, 2017. [more] [archive]

Walter Haelg
Walter Haelg Prize 2017 - Nominations requested

Every two years the European Neutron Scattering Association, ENSA, awards the prestigious Walter Hälg Prize to a European scientist for an outstanding programme of research in neutron scattering with a long term impact on scientific and/or technical neutron scattering applications. In 2017, nominations can be sent to the ENSA chairman until April 30th. [more] [archive]
