News and Research Highlights
A twist on bilayers23 Aug 2021, 12:00
source: Scientific Reports
Bilayer materials are receiving a lot of attention due to their two-dimensional nature and promising applications in, e.g., optoelectronics. A recent paper, co-authored by A. Slobodeniuk, presents optical properties of MoS2 with one layer turned against the other.
Article on the Kondo temperature featured on the faculty web5 Aug 2021, 12:00
Kondo temperature is the main parameter that determines transport properties of magnetic molecules attached to metallic electrodes. We have resolved the ambiguity in the determination of this parameter in our recent paper, which is also featured on the faculty web
Unsupervised phase classification20 Jul 2021, 0:00
source: Physical Review Research
Correct phase diagrams of strongly correlated systems, e.g., high temperature superconductors or spintronics materials, are important roadmaps for future applications. However, because of their complexity and the fact that we might not even know all of the phases of a particular system, their construction is a complicated and often cumbersome task. Yet, it does not have to be if we entrust it into the hands of a new machine learning method introduced in the recent PRResearch paper coauthored by Martin Žonda.
Alžběta’s recent PRL26 Mar 2021, 10:00
source: Physical Review Letters
Wonderful news! Our PhD student Alžběta Kadlecová is the only Czech coauthor on a recent article published in Physical Review Letters. In a collaboration with Université Paris-Saclay, a surprising decrease of the AC Josephson current in a carbon nanotube quantum dot is studied. Congratulations, Alžběta!
