Progress in the application of spin effects in graphene: from the metal to the semiconductor world

D. Marchenko, A. Varykhalov, O. Rader, Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin

Graphene on silicon carbide could be an interesting candidate for future spintronik components. Squeezing gold atoms between the semiconducting substrate and graphene does enhance spin-orbit interaction at hot spots and shows ways to controll the spins. First results at BESSY II are now published in Applied Physics Letters. [more] [archive]

German Federal Ministry of Education and Research tackles research data management

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research has announced the funding guidelines for research on management of research data in their life cycle at universities and other research institutions. The focus is on defining which models and management options are possible and which subject-related and other resources are necessary for tackling urgent challenges of strategic relevance for research data management. Grant applications and project descriptions can be handed in until October 14, 2016. [more] [archive]

Evening lectures: scientific insights into art and cultural heritage

In a new series of evening lectures in Dresden, experts from France, Austria and Germany present their research on art and cultural heritage from the stone age to ancient until modern times. The participants will find out which chemical methods or how ion-, synchrotronbeams or neutrons are used to examine stone age ivory, greek bronze coins or antique paintings without doing any harm to them.

What the KFS does

The Committee Research with Synchrotron Radiation (KFS) represents scientists, who work with synchrotron radiation in the context of the BMBF-Verbundforschung Condensed Matter. The committee consists of seven elected members and of guests. The main task of the KFS is promoting the research with synchrotron radiation. To get an idea what the KFS is currently dealing with, have a look at the minutes (in German only) or at the email newsletters that are sent out quaterly. [more] [archive]
