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.

Nano-Neuroelectronics : sensing the activity of neurons

The brain is one of the most important systems of the body, activating and controlling its every function. However, it is still barely understood, in health nor in disease. The coding processes and the connections of the nervous system, are highly complex as is their relation to behaviour. It is still not attainable to follow the electrical activity of such dense and intricate networks (billions of connected neurons) without damaging them. Novel approaches and technologies are required to examine neurons and neural circuits by various means and at different scales. Full text.

Simulating Surface Resonant X-Ray Diffraction

The technique called Surface Resonant X-ray Diffraction is a powerful tool for characterizing an ultra-thin film on a surface or an electro-chemical interface. It probes the crystallographic structure of such surface systems by recording 2-Dimensional diffraction peaks at fixed X-Ray energy. Also, one can probe the electronic structure around selected atoms by recording the absorption of X-Rays as a function of their energy, especially at resonance with the binding energy of the atoms’ core electrons. However, the interpretation of the X-Ray data requires development of sophisticated ab initio theoretical methods that can create simulated spectra to be compared with the experimental spectra.
