Program Highlights for year 2014

Magnetic Charge Crystallization in Artificial Spin Ice

“Artificial spin ice” is a term used for arrays of nanoscale magnetic islands on lattices that geometrically frustrate inter-island interactions. 

Ligand-free Colloids and Surface Doping of Silicon Nanocrystals

Inks of inorganic nanocrystals hold great promise for printed electronics but the widely used organic surfactants (ligands) needed to stabilize these inks degrade the electrical quality of the printed films.

Kondo Physics at Ferromagnet/Normal Metal Interfaces

The idealized picture of an interface between two elemental materials is simply an abrupt transition between planes containing two different types of atoms.
