LNS: Laboratory for Neutron Scattering and Imaging
Recently, Boyang Zhou (left) and Amirreza Hemmatzade (right) have successfully defended their PhD theses conducted at LNS.
Ilaria Villa, PhD student at LNS and LIN, represented our activities at the last conference on Highly Frustrated Magnetism held at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, in Chennai (7-13 January, 2024). Ilaria received one of the best poster prices.
With the discovery of a golden miniature box lock, an extraordinary and unique archaeological find was made in north-western Germany by a licensed detectorist.
The object represents an extremely reduced and valuable version of the provincial Roman box locks. These everyday objects were in general significantly larger and normally made either of iron, iron with silver or bronze bands or bronze.
Field-induced bound-state condensation and spin-nematic phase in SrCu2(BO3)2 revealed by neutron scattering up to 25.9 T
In quantum magnetic materials, ordered phases induced by an applied mag- netic field can be described as the Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC) of mag- non excitations. In the strongly frustrated system SrCu2(BO3)2, no clear magnon BEC could be observed, pointing to an alternative mechanism, but the high fields required to probe this physics have remained a barrier to detailed investigation.Here we exploit the first purpose-built high-field neutron scattering facility to measure ...
