Discovery of new fermions in topological chiral crystals

July 18, 2019
Chiral topology is the new frontier in the field of quantum matter. In the recent study, scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden discovered new fermions beyond the concept of the conventional Weyl, Dirac or Majorana fermions in chiral crystals. The new findings promises vast opportunities for future quantum applications. [more]

Tracking Structural Phase Transitions in Lead-Halide Perovskites by Means of Thermal Expansion

May 15, 2019
Lead-halide perovskite materials have a realistic perspective to play an important role in future photovoltaic devices. In our study, we have demonstrated that thermal expansion is a powerful technique to precisely determine phase transition temperatures. Since any structural change has severe impact on the phononic and electronic structure, the information provided by this study can be employed strategically to predict changes in the optical and charge transport properties that are currently under intense investigation.

Metamagnetic texture in a polar antiferromagnet

May 10, 2019
Ferromagnetism with parallel arrangement of magnetic moments and antiferromagnetism with an antiparallel one are two textbooks examples of magnetic orders. We report a discovery of a new type of magnetic order realized in Ca3Ru2O7 when a magnetic field is applied along a special direction in a crystal. A coupling between antiferromagnetic and ferromagnetic orders leads to a magnetic texture, which sways from parallel to antiparallel alignment of moments on lengthscales of a few tens of nanometers.
