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.

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.

Collaborative research center TRR 80 "From electronic correlations to functionality" successful

The transregional collaborative research center TRR 80 "From electronic correlations to functionality" successfully enters the third funding period. The German Research Foundation DFG will continue to support the consortium of the University of Augsburg and the Technical University of Munich with another 8.8 million euros for the next four years. Five projects are mainly carried out at the research neutron source Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (FRM II). [more] [archive]
