High pressure orders electrons

December 10, 2018
High-temperature superconductors can transport electrical energy without losses. However, a rigid charge order prevents superconductivity. In an international collaboration, researchers have studied the competing states with high-resolution inelastic X-ray scattering and found that high uniaxial pressure orders the electrons. Their study provides new insights into the function of electronically correlated materials. [more]

Revealing the topological nature of the surface states in SmB6

November 09, 2018
The topological nature of the surface states in SmB6 is exposed by means of scanning tunneling spectroscopy on samples with magnetic substituents or by using magnetic tunneling tips. These local measurements are complemented by global transport measurements on identical samples. [more]

To the citizens of Dresden

October 11, 2018
On 19th Sept. 2018, there was a racially motivated assault on a foreign PhD student in a tram of DVB. In an open letter, the PhD representatives from six Dresden research institutes clearly position themselves against any violence and oppression towards other people on the basis of their origin or culture. Furthermore, they emphasize the importance of an open and diverse society, especially for Dresden as a research location. [more]

A universal strategy to design superior water splitting electrocatalysts with in situ fast surface reconstruction

October 05, 2018
A universal strategy based on electrochemically induced fast reconstruction of amorphous nanofilm precursors is proposed for exploring ultrahigh mass activity and extremely stable bifunctional water splitting catalysts. The facile reconstruction strategy is promising for the development of novel efficient catalysts for other advanced energy conversion and storage devices. [more]

Electrons go with the flow

October 05, 2018
Hydrodynamic electron flow can only be observed in high-purity quantum materials. An international team of members from the IBM Research Laboratory Zurich, the University of Hamburg and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids has now found signatures of electron hydrodynamics in the semimetal tungsten diphosphide. The results were published in the journal Nature Communications. [more]

GdPtBi, the drosophila for Weyl

August 30, 2018
Magneto-transport experiments of GdPtBi show anomalous Hall effect, chiral anomaly effect and non-zero Berry phase which establish the properties of Weyl physics. All these properties are independent of crystallographic directions. This study confirm that magnetism plays a major role in creating Weyl Fermions via exchange splitting of bands in GdPtBi. [more]

From single-ion Kondo effect to Kondo lattice formation

August 20, 2018
Scanning tunneling spectroscopy data on the archetypical heavy fermion metal YbRh2Si2 establish a hierarchy of energy scales, with the dominance of the lattice Kondo effect requiring temperatures well (about an order of magnitude) below the single-ion Kondo temperature of about 25 K. Only if the lattice Kondo correlations are sufficiently established, quantum critical fluctuations can evolve. [more]
