The Magnetism Group studies physical phenomena originating from the behavior of electrons in matter. Throughout the group, we prepare and study a range of materials ranging from: lanthanoid and uranium-based intermetallics, magnetic-shape-memory Heusler alloys, and frustrated magnetic oxides, to van der Waal and misfit layer materials. Using both our range of preparation and crystal growth facilities, as well as our extensive suite of properties measurements instruments, we are steadily building bridges-of-understanding linking the electronic structure of this wide range of materials to the observed magnetic and electronic properties. We also investigate the tuning of these properties using both high-magnetic fields and high pressures.

What do we explore?

  • magnetism
  • superconductivity
  • quantum effects
  • frustrated systems
  • layered 2D structures including Van der Waals systems and misfit layers

  How do we go about it?

  • Preaparation of unique samples, often as high-quality single crystals
  • Studies down to extremely low temperatures
  • The application of strong magnetic fields and external pressures
  • Hydrogenation as a mechanism to expand metallic lattices
  • Cooperation with the theoretical group for explanation of the observed effects

  What do we offer?

  • A wide range of sample preparation and crystal growth techniques to prepare interesting new materials
  • The possibility to measure with a wide range of techniques, as well as under multi-extreme conditions
  • A young and dynamic scientific team with numerous visiting foreign nationals
  • Operation with specific instruments in the home laboratory and foreign infrastructures as well (sources of neutron and synchrotron radiation)
