Program Highlights for year 2014

Soft nanoscale epitaxy

Researchers in the Irvine and Talapin groups at the University of Chicago MRSEC used nanoparticle membranes discovered by the

Persistent optically-induced magnetism in SrTiO3-d

In collaboration with the group of Scott Crooker at Los Alamos National Lab and Greg Haugstad of the CSE Characterization Facility, graduate student Palak Ambwani and faculty member Chris Leighton have recently reported a remarkable finding in the area of complex oxides.

Polarization Control of the Magnetic State of a Molecule

Spin crossover molecules form a vast class of materials for which the magnetic structure can be altered at the atomic level by an external stimulus.

Center for NanoFerroic Devices

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) leads a new $7 million research collaboration involving six universities to develop a new generation of electronic devices in partnership with an industry consortium.

Universality of Voltage-Controlled Boundary Magnetization

Roughness insensitive boundary magnetization is a new concept discovered by Nebraska MRSEC researchers. It is a unique feature of magnetoelectric antiferromagnets, i.e.

Nebraska MSREC WoPhyS13 Conference

The University of Nebraska held its fifth Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physical Sciences on October 24-26, 2013 under the scientific theme “Nano Trek.”

Nebraska MRSEC Professor/Student Pairs Programs

The Nebraska MRSEC Professor/Student Pairs Program brings in a professor and a student from non-research intensive four-year institutions to conduct research with Nebraska MRSEC scientists.

Hybrid Ferroelectric/Graphene Devices

Graphene is a two-dimensional material that consists of carbon atoms arranged in a h

Bulk Dirac Points in Distorted Spinels

The LRSM topological insulator (TI) seed is investigating how the connectivity of electronic bands in momentum space can be used to topologically classify insulators and semimetals. The theory of topological band structures has been generalized beyond TIs to include topological semimetals, including Weyl semimetals, Dirac semimetals and other symmetry protected topological states.
