Committee Research with Neutrons: News from Research and Committee
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.

MATRAC 1 School

The MATRAC 1 School "Application of Neutrons and Synchrotron Radiation in Materials Science" will be held in Lauenburg and Hamburg, Germany, from 2 to 7 September 2018. A systematic overview of the application of neutrons and synchrotron radiation to the structural analysis of engineering materials will be provided. The focus of the practical training will be on synchrotron experiments. Neutron data analysis will also be practised. Application until June 15, 2018. [more] [archive]

ILL/ESS European Neutron User Meeting

The ILL and ESS European Users Meeting (10-12 October 2018) aims at reviewing recent achievements and the current status and, above all, looking forward to new scientific opportunities with neutrons for the next decade. In addition, a school dedicated to Diffraction on Energy Materials (DiffEngMat School) will be organized (8 and 9 October 2018) and a Diffraction on Energy Materials Meeting will be organized as a parallel event of the ILL-ESS User Meeting. Abstracts are accepted until June 17, 2018. [more] [archive]
