Nanomagnetism and spintronics

Nanomagnetism deals with the investigation of magnetism in materials reduced to nanometre length scale along one, two or three dimensions. Reduced dimensions and the presence of surfaces and interfaces lead to new or enhanced magnetic properties and functionalities. More


Superconductivity and correlated electrons

The discovery of iron pnictide superconductors with high transition temperature has attracted extensive interest on their physical properties and thereby the physical mechanism of high-temperature superconductors. More


Multifunctional materials

Magnetic and electric degrees of freedom are both employed in information technology and other applications. Their combination and coupling in a “multiferroic” offers potential for improvements, for example in form of magnetic memories writable by magnetoelectric coupling. More


Neutron Scattering

Development of methods and operation of instruments for neutron scattering.


Institute of Crystallography

The staff at the Institute of Crystallography does research on crystal structures using neutron and x-ray radiation under the guidance of Dr. Lars Peters (Deputy Chair). The goals include a further development of diffraction and scattering methods as well as an application of these methods to elucidate structure-property relationships in modern materials. More


ESS Instrumentation

The ESS is a next-generation European neutron research facility to be built in Lund, Sweden; our department “ESS Instrumentation” designs concepts for neutron scattering instruments there. More


High Brilliance Neutron Source

The high brilliance accelerator-based neutron source HBS represents a unique infrastructure for neutron analysis (imaging methods and scattering) to be used in a multitude of scientifc disciplines such as physics, chemistry, biology, geology, materials and engineering sciences. More
