Junior award from the European Rare Earth and Actinide Society for Eteri Svanidze<br /> 

Congratulations to Eteri Svanidze, who was awarded the 7th ERES Junior award from the European Rare Earth and Actinide Society (ERES) for “her talented contributions to the solid-state chemistry and physics of f-elements“. The award was presented at ICFE-11, which was held in Strasbourg (France) last August.

Conduction electrons drive giant, nonlinear elastic response in Sr<sub>2</sub>RuO<sub>4</sub>

The hardness of a material normally is set by the strength of chemical bonds between electrons of neighbouring atoms, not by freely flowing conduction electrons. Now a team of scientists from MPI-CPfS, Germany, Japan, Korea and the United States has shown that current-carrying electrons can make the lattice much softer than usual in the material Sr2RuO4. more
