Neue Einblicke in Supraleitermaterialien

Wissenschaftler die magnetischen Eigenschaften einzelner Atomlagen eines Materials zu untersuchen, das die Grundlage einiger Hochtemperatursupraleiter bildet. Dabei zeigte sich, dass sich die atomar dünnen Materialschichten in den magnetischen Eigenschaften erstaunlich wenig von makroskopisch dicken Materialproben unterscheiden.

Interfaces provide new control over oxides' electronic properties

By combining two sophisticated experimental tools - oxide molecular beam expitaxy and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy - researchers have gained the first insights into quantum interactions in transition metal oxide superlattices, which are artificial stacked layers of alternating materials, each just a few atoms thick.
