05/04/2016 Enhancement of bulk skyrmion stability under pressure

Skyrmions are vortices of spin which appear in chiral magnets. Nanometer-sized domains and low energy make them ideal candidates for future data storage devices. However, their application is hampered by their very narrow temperature window. The latest paper by our colleagues shows that the skyrmion phase can be widened significantly under pressure.

11/11/2015 Drag force on a DNA-protein complex pulled through a glass nanocapillary

Sanjin Marion published a paper in Nano Letters (IF=13.6 in 2014.) together with UKF project collaborators prof. A. Rađenović and R. Bulushev from EPFL on the topic of controlled translocation of individual DNA bound proteins using optical tweezers. S. Marion contributed through interpretation and theoretical modeling of experimental results.


05/10/2015 Nano-rippled graphene – a modified graphene for large scale applications

In their latest Carbon paper, I. Šrut Rakić and M. Kralj together with D. Čapeta (PMF) and M. Plodinec (IRB) describe synthesis of macroscopic nano-rippled graphene on a vicinal metal surface and its transfer to a dielectric support. The procedure opens up possible applications in sensors, electrodes, optoelectronics, spintronics, and straintronics.

09/09/2015 Incommensurate systems demonstrating glasslike behavior

There is an inherent difficulty in applying concepts developed for crystalline, ordered solids to their glassy, noncrystalline counterparts. Even though glasses display mechanical properties of solids, the very lack of order makes them more akin to liquids. Together with their French and German colleagues, Katica Biljaković and Damir Starešinić from IF have recently published a paper in Physical Review Letters on features found in specific heat of ThBr4 that link crystalline incommensurate systems and glasslike behavior.

15/12/2015Colloquium in joint organization

Next Tuesday, December 22, prof. Andras Kis will present a colloquium titled “2D dichalcogenide electronic materials and devices” at the Institute of Physics. This colloquium of CEMS is prepared in a joined organization of IF, IRB and PD-PMF.
