Exploring the nanoworld in 3D

Imagine a cube on which light is projected by a flashlight. The cube reflects the light in a particular way, so simply spinning the cube or moving the flashlight makes it possible to examine each (...)

Suppressing precession in magnetic materials accelerates their dynamics

Magnetic precession – the rotation of the magnetisation around an applied torque — seems an unavoidable obstacle to faster magnetic devices. Now, researchers at the LPS have shown that magnetic (...)

An ocean of microplastics tracked at the nanoscale

What is the fate of polymer debris in the ocean? Aging of polyethylene packaging after prolonged marine exposure has been tracked at the nanoscale. A recent work demonstrates that the (...)

Spin-dependent energy transport in a superconductor

As conventional superconductors in their ground state are spinless and cannot transport energy, it might be assumed that they would not be of interest for the emerging field of spin (...)
