Two ICMAB studies at the ALBA Synchrotron Activity Report 2016

Two Scientific Highlights with the participation of ICMAB researchers are featured in the ALBA Synchrotron Activity Report 2016.

25 October 2017

We welcome you to have a look at the two studies: 

  • Emerging diluted ferromagnetism in high-Tc superconductors driven by point defect clusters
    Advanced Science 3, 1500295 (2016)
    J. Gazquez,*, R. Guzman, R. Mishra, E. Bartolomé, J. Salafranca, C. Magén, M. Varela, M. Coll, A. Palau, S. M. Valvidares, P. Gargiani, E. Pellegrin, J. Herrero-Martin, S. J. Pennycook, S.T. Pantelides, T. Puig, X. Obradors
    This study unveils the formation of ferromagnetic clusters embedded within the YBCO superconductor. Superconductivity and ferromagnetism are considered to be naturally exclusive phenomena; however, these results reveal the coexistence of ferromagnetic interactions much closer to high Tc superconductivity than previously suspected, which presents fundamental new physical insights.
