Billinge group members and collaborators recently conducted a detailed experimental and theoretical study of the magnetic interactions in the classic antiferromagnet MnO using magnetic pair distribution function (mPDF) analysis, resulting in a publication in Physical Review Letters (Frandsen et al, Phys. Rev. Lett. 116 197204, see here). This work, which has furthered the methodology of… Read More mPDF study of MnO highlighted by Brookhaven and Columbia
Recent work in the Billinge group on a new family of superconductors, published here in Nature Communications, has been highlighted by Brookhaven National Lab and the Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science (see press release here). Superconductivity refers to the ability of certain materials to conduct electricity without any energy loss, and the… Read More Research on novel titanate superconductor gains media attention

In December 2012, Professor Simon Billinge led the first materials science workshop of the recently formed Joint U.S.-Africa Materials Science Institute (JUAMI) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (see our former newsflash for more details). As the research collaborations formed in Addis continue to flourish, we have been excited to see the media interest in the experiences… Read More JUAMI Workshop in Ethiopia Gains Media Exposure Back Home
