22/04/2024 Optically driven plasmons in graphene/hBN van der Waals heterostructures: simulating s-SNOM measurements

Our colleagues Neven Golenić and Vito Despoja, together with a collaborator from Italy Stefano de Gironcoli, published a paper in Nanophotonics, where they theoretically examined the 2D plasmon excitation efficiency in graphene/hexagonal-boron-nitride (Gr/hBN) composites via silver spherical nanoparticle.


29/03/2024 Strain-enhanced large-area monolayer MoS2 photodetectors

Members of our SIMAT group, in collaboration with colleges from Spain, published a paper in the prestigious journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, where they show a direct correlation between applied mechanical strain and increase of photoresponsivity, as well as demonstrated endurance of non-encapsulated MoS2 monolayer based strain devices.

08/03/2024 Spin-Reorientation-Driven Linear Magnetoelectric Effect in Topological Antiferromagnet Cu3TeO6

In a paper recently published in the journal Physical Review Letters, our colleagues V. Kisiček, D. Dominko, M. Čulo, M. Herak and T. Ivek, together with other collaborators, highlighted the role of spin reorientation in the magnetoelectric effect observed in antiferromagnetically ordered cuprate Cu3TeO6 investigated using static polarization measurements in an external magnetic field. The discovery indicates a previously undetected change in magnetic symmetry in the magnetic field, which plays a key role in the realized magnetoelectric effect, and in topological spin excitations as well.

27/02/2024 Intercalation-induced states at the Fermi level and the coupling of intercalated magnetic ions to conducting layers in Ni1/3NbS2

An international research team led by our colleagues from the Department for Research of Materials under Extreme Conditions revealed the electronic structure of nickel intercalated 2H-NbS2. The combination of theoretical and experimental approaches provided insight into the peculiar role of the intercalated Ni ions in the electronic structure of the layered compound. The work received “Editors’ Suggestion” from Physical Review B.

06/12/2023 2D boron layer as a nanoscopic diffraction grating

A multimethod investigation of 2D boron sheet – i.e. borophene – on the surface of iridium is reported in a new paper by our colleagues from the SIMAT group with PhD student Sherif Kamal as the lead author. The study, published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, highlights the nanomodulated properties of epitaxial borophene which acts as an electron diffraction grating.
