    Broadband spectroscopy at extreme magnetic fields: First results

    Magnetic fields exceeding 100 T can be obtained only by semi-destructive methods. In one approach, the magnetic field is generated by a single-turn coil, which explodes during the pulse leaving the cryostat where the sample is...read more

    Electrons in flat bands

    Layered materials can realize different stackings of their individual planes, different polytypes, to compose three-dimensional structures. ABA-stacked graphite is the most stable form of graphite at ambient conditions and the...read more
