12/10/2020 Mechanical design of apertures and the infolding of pollen grain

Our colleague Antonio Šiber, in collaboration with Anže Božič from the Jožef Stefan Institute has published an article in prestigious journal, the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The authors investigated how the infolding of the pollen grain depends on its mechanical design. Their elastic model of the grain showed that the elasticity and geometry of the grain must be precisely tuned in order to enable the infolding which reflect directly on the functionality and the evolution of the pollen.

15/09/2020 Cluster Superlattice Membranes

Our colleagues Davor Čapeta and Marko Kralj, as part of international cooperation, published a paper in the prestigious journal ACS Nano. The paper demonstrates the possibility of forming a free-standing nano-membrane, which consists of a periodic network of metallic nano-clusters on graphene, additionally reinforced with protective layer of amorphous carbon.

17/08/2020 Linewidth narrowing with ultimate confinement of alkali multipole plasmon by modifying surface electronic wavefunction with two dimensional materials

Our colleagues Marin Petrović and Marko Kralj, in collaboration with researchers from Kyoto University, published a paper in Physical Review Letters. Intercalation and adsorption of alkali atoms has been utilized for the formation of a 2D material-alkali sandwich, which enabled strong localization of the system’s wavefunction and the formation of a pronounced multipole plasmon.



14/07/2020 Anomalous temperature dependence of exciton spectral diffusion in tetracene thin film

Our colleagues Marin Petrović and Marko Kralj, in collaboration with researchers from Kyoto University, published a study in high-ranking Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. Utilization of epitaxial graphene as a substrate for preparation of high-quality tetracene thin film enabled characterization of new processes relevant to exciton spectral diffusion in tetracene.

28/05/2020 Preferential out-of-plane conduction and quasi-one-dimensional electronic states in layered 1T-TaS2

Our colleague Eduard Tutiš, in collaboration with scientists from Switzerland, Germany and Department of Physics of PMF in Zagreb, published paper in npj 2D materials and Applications. The paper provides the first experimental and theoretical insight into the state with electronic orbitals getting self-organized into metallic objects (the “Chains of Stars”) extending in direction perpendicular to layers.
