20/01/2017 Symmetry Reduction in a Quantum Kagome Antiferromagnet

Together with her colleagues from Slovenia, France and USA, our Mirta Herak recently published a paper in Physical Review Letters about symmetry reduction in herbertsmithite. The titular crystal is the closest natural realization of the quantum kagome antiferromagnet. For the first time its magnetic properties reveal a broken symmetry at low temperatures.

01/12/2016 Discrimination of DNA−Protein Complexes by Translocation Through Nanocapillaries

Prof. A. Rađenović from EPFL, Switzerland and Sanjin Marion, assistant at Institut za fiziku, Zagreb, have published a paper in Nano Letters on translocating macromolecules through nano-sized pores in order to discriminate DNA-protein complexes and pin-pointing their binding sites – a step towards practical nanopore devices.

11/11/2016 USA patent granted to Institut za fiziku and our inventors dr. Mladen Prester and dr. Đuro Drobac

Institutu za fiziku and our inventors dr. Mladen Prester and dr. Đuro Drobac have been awarded patent US 9,458,969 B2 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office for the invention of “Cryostat with PTR cooling and two stage sample holder thermalization”.

31/10/2016 Properties of the low-temperature order in the 1D semiconductor (NbSe4)3I

Two groups from Institute of Physics have recently published an article in Physical Review B studying the phase transitions in (NbSe4)3I semiconductor by ultrafast time resolved spectroscopy, which is the first time the technique has been employed at the Institute. This also marks the fruitful beginning of collaboration for our two groups which cover two distinct areas of physics: atomic physics and condensed matter physics.
