Thin film oxides: From honeycombs to quasicrystals

Breaking translational symmetry while maintaining long range order is one fascinating aspect of quasicrystals. For two-dimensional oxide quasicrystals, researchers at the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Max Planck Institute Halle… more

Integrated waveguide photodetectors for visible light

In a paper published in Nature Communications, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Halle have demonstrated broadband, high-efficiency silicon nitride-on-silicon waveguide photodetectors that are monolithically integrated with visible light photonic circuits. more

Prof. Georg Woltersdorf generates new nanoscale spin waves

Max Planck Fellow Prof. Georg Woltersdorf and physicists from the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg generate new nanoscale spin waves more

Cooper pairs with finite momentum rectify supercurrent flow

In a paper published in Nature Physics, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Halle show that a lateral Josephson junction made from a type-II Dirac semimetal Nickel di-telluride (NiTe2) and superconducting Niobium (Nb) electrodes exhibits a large nonreciprocal critical… more

A novel strategy to stabilize non-collinear spin textures in van der Waals magnets

A novel strategy to stabilize non-collinear spin textures in van der Waals magnets by self-intercalation. more

Switching of chiral antiferromagnetic films: a new mechanism is proposed

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics found a new mechanism to a novel method of manipulating the ground state of a special class of antiferromagnetic thin films with chiral magnetic ground states. more

Magnetism in two dimensions goes “easy-plane”

Observation of fractional edge excitations in nanographene spin chains

Recently, researchers from the group of Prof. Xinliang Feng (TU Dresden, MPI Halle, Germany) in collaboration with the scientists from Switzerland, Portugal and Spain have succeeded in building carbon-based quantum spin chains, where they captured the emergence of one of the cornerstone models of… more

Ultra-low-power memcapacitor device for neuromorphic computing - published in Nature Electronics October 11<sup>th</sup>, 2021

Much effort is being made to develop new types of memory devices that can revolutionize the computing paradigm of the past half century. Major breakthroughs are needed, in particular, in the domain of Deep Learning as a subset of Artificial Intelligence. In-memory computing and brain inspired… more

Ionitronic manipulation of Racetrack memory devices

Racetrack memory devices are novel spintronic memory-storage devices that have been demonstrated to have highly attractive properties, including high speed and density, and non-volatility. A novel feature of these devices is that the digital data is encoded as nanoscopic magnetic domain walls that… more
