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]

GeCatS Infoday Synchrotron Radiation and Neutrons for Catalysis, Materials Research and Development

DECHEMA and GeCatS organize an Infoday Synchrotron Radiation and Neutrons for Catalysis, Materials Research and Development on October 23, 2017 in Frankfurt am Main. The programme comprises talks, posters (abstract deadline is Sept. 22, 2017) and a panel discussion. Members of the KFN and KFS will give talks. The event aims not only at the exchange between both source und user communities on the current technological status, but also at the attractiveness, synergies and innovation potential of new facilities - 2017 and in the near future.

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]
