The importance of the weak

[2018-03-12] Researchers at the Division of Material Physics at Uppsala University have shown how the collective dynamics in a structure consisting of interacting magnetic nano-islands can be altered to possess liquid-like qualities, as well as promoting emergent magnetic states. Their findings are published in the scientific journal Nature Physics. Read more >>

Ultrafast Change of Volume Discovered in Magnetic Materials

[2018-02-15] All magnetic materials show a change of volume if their magnetization changes, but how the process takes place on the shortest time scales is still a mystery. An international collaboration of both experimental and theoretical research groups has now managed to come a step closer to the solution of this riddle. Read more >>
