A direct view on spin-waves

February 25, 2016
Spin-waves are promising candidates for future information processing schemes as there is almost no frictional heating in magnetic transport. Information encoding, however, is only possible in spin-wave packets. A group of Hamburg-based CUI researchers has succeeded in creating and capturing such defined wave-packets in slow-motion videos. The team describes its experimental set-up for uncovering the ultrafast processes in the interdisciplinary journal Scientific Reports. In addition, the experiment generated a wave-motion which approaches the excitation region from a distance rather than emerging out of it. The motion contradicts human intuition similar to a “moonwalk”. [more]

Wetting Camphor

January 13, 2016
An international collaboration centered in Melanie Schnell’s group from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter at CFEL in Hamburg carried out the first multi-isotopic substitution experiments to precisely determine the structure of a microsolvated organic molecule. Their study recently appeared in The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters and shows a new approach for understanding how solvation takes place at its early stages. [more]
