More fun with VI3: van der Waals ferromagnet under pressure

The ferromagnetic compound VI3 has been already investigated in the MGML laboratories as a member of a family of quasi-two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals materials showing promising application potential for the design of spintronic devices. As a next research step of this unique system, we have focused on the evolution of its magnetism in external pressure up to 7.3 GPa…

Annual report 2020

We present the annual report covering “Covid year” 2020. The facility significantly increased both national and international collaboration. As Scientific Highlights we are presenting complex studies on geometrically frustrated pyrochlore lattice and the discovery of the new phase of water when trapped within crystal lattice.

In-house research revealed extreme narrow magnetic domain walls

Low temperature magnetic force microscopy can be used to study magnetic domains in both thin films and (well polished) bulk materials. MGML scientists have performed such studies of an uniaxial ferromagnet UCoGa prepared in single crystalline form, showing extremely narrow magnetic domain walls.

Annual report 2019

Our first annual report. This year’s Scientific Highlights features studies on two modern hot-topic group of compounds: Topological insulators and van der Waals materials. The annual report also presents our recent technical development as well as facts and figures about MGML, our user programme and collaboration with industrial sector.
