Scientific highlights

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.

An electrical power plug that connects by magnetism

Connecting and disconnecting electrical-power plugs, to and from their sockets, has become a routine action for everyone, especially with the increasing numbers of electrical, electronic and computing devices. The Institut NEEL is a partner in the project PRIMA ("PRIse MAgnétique") which is developing a novel, quick-action magnetic connector. This connector exploits a strong magnetic field to guide the plug to its socket and to attach it firmly while, at the same time, providing complete security for both the user and the power or signal. In certain applications, it will also provide a "smart" connection with inbuilt intelligence for supervision and management of the electrical power transmission. The Institut NEEL’s role is to provide its expertise in magnetic materials for the development of the powerful magnets to be integrated in these connectors. Full text.
