Ein Team unter der Leitung von Wissenschaftlern des MPI CPfS hat eine neuartige experimentelle Methode entwickelt, die direkte Bilder von angeregten Zuständen in einer Übergangsmetallverbindung liefert, ohne dass komplexe Rechnungen erforderlich sind. Dies ist ein wichtiger Schritt für das Verständnis der elektronischen Struktur und der vielfältigen Physik dieser Materialien. mehr

The intricate interplay of band-formation and electron correlation effects in uranium heavy fermion compounds is subject of an ongoing debate. Here scientists from MPI CPfS in Dresden, University of Cologne, University of Erlangen, Heidelberg University, University of California at San Diego, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Institute of Low Temperature & Structure Research in Wroclaw, Van-der-Waals-Zeeman Institute in Amsterdam, and the German Synchrotron in Hamburg (PETRA-III/DESY) gained new and unexpected insight from advanced spectroscopies on isostructural members of the UM2Si2 family with different properties. mehr

The research teams of Hao Tjeng from the MPI-CPfS, Andrea Severing from the University of Cologne, Antoine Maignan from CRISMAT Laboratory Caen, and Maurits Haverkort from the University of Heidelberg have succeeded in determining the electronic orbital that is responsible for the Ising magnetism in Ca3Co2O6. A direct image of the donut-shaped orbital has been made using the new Max Planck end-station at German Electron Synchrotron DESY in Hamburg. mehr
