Scientific highlights

Electron beam techniques to probe semiconductor nanowires

Semiconductor “nanowires“ are long and narrow, submicron-diameter crystals of semiconducting materials. Grown from the vapour, densely packed onto a substrate, they have been under intense investigation for the last two decades, especially for their use in light emitting diodes (LEDs), photovoltaics and energy harvesting devices.

2. Switching magnetic skyrmion bubbles on and off

Skyrmions were at first a theoretical concept formulated by Tony Skyrme in 1962 in the context of nuclear physics, as a model for nucleons. Technically, they are “topological solitons“ localized in space and with particle-like properties : they have quantized “topological charges“, interact via attractive and repulsive forces, and can condense into ordered phases.
