"Cloppenburg" analyzed with neutrons

Cloppenburg is a city in Lower Saxony and therefore namesake for a strange stone, which was there already found in March 2017. Experts from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) were able to confirm beyond doubt that this is a piece of meteorite from the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. He was named after his locality "Cloppenburg"...[more]

Twisted magnetic fluctuations in superconductors

A Chinese research group led by Prof. Jun Zhao at Fudan University founded the twisted magnetic excitations in the new Fe-based superconductor Li0.8Fe0.2ODFeSe from a neutron scattering experiment on PUMA, MLZ and Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the United State. This finding provides one step further in understanding of the mechanism in high...[more]
