Our in-house characterization of unique pyrochlore heterostructures using X-ray scattering methods contributed to recent work by Jian Liu's research group at the University of Tennessee. They designed and synthesized a pyrochlore heterostructure where the breaking of the spin ice rule and the condensation of magnetic monopole in insulating Dy2Ti2O7 can be detected by anomalous magnetoresistance in the Bi2Ir2O7 conducting layer. See the paper in Nature Communications for more.
