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.

June 7, 2017: The result of the KFN election

The German neutron users have elected their new representatives. 7 candidates out of 15 were elected (Markus Braden, Klaudia Hradil, Regine v. Klitzing, Wiebke Lohstroh, Andreas Meyer, Walter Richtering, Astrid Schneidewind). To complete the KFN it needs: one representative of each neutron centre and user platform, usually 4 members who are coopted by the elected members to cover important scientific fields, and a representative of the BMBF and the Project Management Organisation as guests. Here, we present the election result. [more] [archive]

Workshops on Future Perspectives of the Röntgen-Ångström Cluster - Neutron Science Workshop

The Röntgen-Ångström Cluster RAC is a Swedish-German research collaboration in the fields of materials science and structural biology that aims to strengthen research at synchrotron and neutron radiation sources. The Neutron Science Workshop on June 28, 2017 in Lund is one of two scientific workshops that are strongly cross-connected (Photon Science/ Neutron Science) to discuss the future perspectives of RAC beyond 2020. The workshops shall bring together key stakeholders from various scientific fields and associated research communities to discuss and identify the most promising scientific directions and arrive at a long-term strategic view how the RAC collaborative framework should be further pushed and developed towards new levels.

European Deuteration Network user survey

Within the SINE2020 project, a European Deuteration Network (DEUNET) aims to increase the availability and accessibility of complex deuterated molecules to the European neutron scattering community. The organisation of the facilities into a network helps planning for ESS and leverages the unique specialisations of each of the laboratories. Under this project, a short user survey is conducted to help to get a better overview of your demands for deuterated materials. We hope you will participate in this survey. [more] [archive]
