Team Planckton back

An impressive picture of the 30th Dragon Boat Festival on the banks of the Elbe in Loschwitz and the competitions on the water was presented to the spectators, who strolled across the "Blue Wonder" and in some cases stopped to watch the 62 teams racing.  One of them was Team “Planckton”, which consisted of 19 members of the different working groups of the MPI-CPfS (picture of the water flea with shirt). It competed there with 4 other teams from the field of universities and research in the "Technology Cup". more

Small but packs a punch: Electro-nuclear Transition in YbRh<sub>2</sub>Si<sub>2</sub>

Experiments show that the heavy fermion compound YbRh2Si2 undergoes a spectacular electro-nuclear phase transition into a modulated magnetic state at a temperature as low as 1.5 mK. In a just published paper, an international team of scientists from the UK (Royal Holloway University of London) and Germany (Goethe University Frankfurt, MPI-CPfS Dresden) demonstrated that in YbRh2Si2, at TA = 1.5 mK, the tiny nuclear moments profoundly change an electronic magnetic state formed at a much higher temperature  TN = 70.5 mK.   more
