Am Max-Planck-Institut für Mikrostrukturphysik entsteht ein Neubau für Hightech-Forschung more

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics have discovered one of the largest anomalous Hall effects (15,506 siemens per centimeter at 2 Kelvin) ever observed in the new compound, KV3Sb5. This material has a never-before-seen combination of properties: Dirac physics, frustrated magnetism, 2D exfoliatability, and chemical stability. Aside from future fundamental research studying the interplay of these ingredients, the unique combination has potential for next-generation computing technologies like spintronics and quantum computing. more

An international team of scientists including Dr. Mazhar N. Ali, the Alexander von Humboldt Sofia Kovalevskaja Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Microstructure Physics, and his student Jiho Yoon have found evidence of higher order topology in the form of hinge states in the layered, 2D material, WTe2. more

Magnetic (anti)skyrmions are microscopically small whirls that are found in special classes of magnetic materials. These nano-objects could be used to host digital data by their presence or absence in a sequence along a magnetic stripe. A team of scientists from the Max Planck institutes (MPI) of Microstructure Physics in Halle and for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden and the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) has now made the observation that skyrmions and antiskyrmions can coexist bringing about the possibility to expand their capabilities in storage devices. The results were published in the scientific journal “Nature Communications”. more
