24/10/2023 — Science newsPhonon Self-Energy Corrections: To Screen, or Not to Screen

In a paper published in the Physical Review X, our colleague Nina Girotto contributed to the international collaborative research to quantify the comparison of controversial approaches to calculating the self-energy of phonons by downfolding the problem to effective low-energy systems. This work settles a heated debate about which formulation is more appropriate in a first-principles context.

08/10/2023 — Science newsDynamical Phonons Following Electron Relaxation Stages in Photoexcited Graphene

Nina Girotto and Dino Novko published a paper in The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, where they theoretically examined intriguing consequences of a photo-excited electron distribution on phonons in graphene

28/09/2023 — Science newsComplementary perturbative and nonperturbative pictures of plasmonically induced electron emission from flat metal surfaces

Our colleagues Branko Gumhalter and Dino Novko have published a monograph in a special volume of the journal Progress in Surface Science in which they had developed complementary perturbative and non-perturbative treatments of plasmonically induced electron emission from flat metal surfaces

19/09/2023 — Science newsSeesaw in the world of 2D materials

By using only one precursor and the same metal substrate, it is possible to synthesize two very different 2D materials – hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) or borophene – by fine-tuning the synthesis parameters. The background “seesaw” mechanism that makes this possible was explained in a new paper by colleague Petrović and collaborators from the University of Duisburg-Essen.

02/09/2023 — Science newsQuantum holography for better 3D images

Our colleagues Denis Abramović, Nazif Demoli, and Hrvoje Skenderović, in collaboration with Mario Stipčević (IRB) show in a paper published in the Physical Review A that the holographic method can be used even more successfully with quantum light

20/07/2023 — Science newsQuantum vortex liquid in iron-based superconductors FeSe1-xSx and FeSe1-xTex with the electron nematic order

In a new paper published in Nature Communications, our colleague Matija Čulo in collaboration with scientists from England, Netherlands and Japan, reported a high-field magnetotransport study that provided compelling evidence for the existence of an exotic and a very rare quantum vortex liquid phase in superconductors FeSe1-xSx and FeSe1-xTex with the electron nematic order.

11/07/2023 — Science newsAmbient stability of graphene-borophene heterostructures

In a new paper published in Advanced Electronic Materials, our colleague Marin Petrović in collaboration with scientists from Elettra synchrotron, University of Trieste and University of Venice has demonstrated a new route for the synthesis of layered graphene-borophene heterostructures which exhibit exceptional chemical and mechanical stability in ambient conditions.

17/04/2023 — Science newsUltrafast Photoelimination of Nitrogen from Upper Excited States of Diazoalkanes and the Fate of Carbenes Formed in the Reaction

Our ultrafast boys in collaboration with colleagues from Ruđer Bošković Institute published their work in Journal of Organic Chemistry where, using femtosecond laser spectroscopy, they investigated several photochemical reactions of carbene formation from diazoalkanes in anti-Kasha reactions.

05/04/2023 — Science newsUnifying fast computer-generated hologram calculation and prepress for new and existing production techniques

Our colleagues A. L. Brkić, M. Rakić and H. Skenderović in collaboration with V. Cviljušac from the Faculty of Graphic Arts published a paper dealing with a new method of calculating, fast printing of holograms, and hologram engraving in glass by femtosecond laser pulses.

13/03/2023 — Science newsApplication of nano-FTIR spectroscopy in studying polymerization of aromatic nitroso derivatives on Au(111) surface

Our colleagues Iva Šrut Rakić and Marko Kralj, in collaboration with prof. Biljan from the Department of Chemistry, studied the polymerization of nitroso molecules on gold. The significance of this work is that our new near-field microscope was successfully used to identify distinct molecular groups at the nanoscale.
