Resumption of activities at Institut Néel

The resumption of activities on the site is facilitated since June 22nd, in compliance with the rules of physical distance and other barrier gestures in force at the laboratory.
Good resumption !

Reprise d’activités à l’Institut Néel

La reprise d’activités sur le site est facilitée depuis le 22 juin 2020, dans le respect des règles de distanciation physique et des autres gestes barrières en vigueur au laboratoire.
Bonne reprise à toutes et tous !

Un Prix "Dominique Givord" a été décerné par l’European Magnetism Association !

En 2019, l’Association européenne du magnétisme (EMA) a créé deux prix : le prix "Young Scientist" décerné chaque année, et le prix "Dominique Givord" décerné tous les 3 ans, pour honorer les avancées du magnétisme en Europe.
Wolfgang Wernsdorfer (KIT) est le premier lauréat à recevoir ce prix... La suite ici.

Lithium-ion diffusion pathways within new battery-cathode materials

Li-ion batteries form a basic component on which our world of mobile electronics and communication is built. And they are increasingly used in high power applications such as electric vehicles and the storage of electricity from solar and other renewable power sources. In these batteries, the cathode is a lithium-containing compound. During a battery’s charging and discharging, Li+ ions are alternately extracted from and reinserted in the cathode as they move through the electrolyte to the anode and back. The cathode material must sustain wide variations of its Li+ ion content over many cycles. Full text.

Running a nano-engine just by looking at it

In quantum physics, measuring a quantum system can strongly perturb its state, which also affects the system’s energy. We have recently proposed a new kind of engine that, in theory, can extract work from such energetic fluctuations of purely quantum nature, induced by the measurement. This « nano-engine » adapts James Clerk Maxwell’s thought experiment (the "Maxwell’s daemon") to the quantum domain. Full text.
