Confinement measures aiming at limiting the transmission of the Covid 19 virus have led to shutting down the CNRS campus of Institut Néel from March 17 at noon until further notice.
The staff goes on working from home whenever possible.
Research goes on !


Les mesures de confinement visant à limiter la contagion de la population par le virus Covid 19 ont entraîné la fermeture du site CNRS sur lequel est implanté l’Institut Néel, à partir du 17 mars 2020 à midi et jusqu’à nouvel ordre.
Dans la mesure du possible, le personnel poursuit son activité à distance. La recherche continue !

Scanning Hall-Probe Microscopy

At the Institut NEEL, we develop many highly sophisticated scanning probes to use for a large variety of experiments under extreme conditions of magnetic field, low temperature and vacuum, as well as microscopes sensitive to charge, to currents, to magnetic fields, forces, electrical potential, to name just a few. Here, we wish to highlight a microscope which does not operate under extreme conditions but has the advantage of being extremely versatile. This microscope is a "Scanning Hall-Probe Microscope" (SHPM) which allows us to do direct, quantitative measurements of the spatial variation of a a magnetic field, that is to "map" the field.

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.
