Explorer les propriétés d’un qudit, élément clé de l’informatique quantique

Une équipe de l’Institut Néel a démontré qu’il est possible de contrôler de façon quantique un spin unique multi-niveaux porté par un aimant moléculaire – constituant un « qudit » – permettant ainsi son étude approfondie. La suite ici. Lire l’actualité scientifique. •02/2019•

Scientific highlights

A Single-Electron Transistor breaks the law of thermal conductivity

Good conductors of heat are usually also good conductors of electricity. The celebrated Wiedemann-Franz law states that, at a given temperature, the thermal conductivity of a metal is proportional to its electrical conductivity. Yet, a joint group of researchers of the Institut NEEL and Aalto University (Finland) has led an experiment revealing that this law is violated in a specific quantum electronic device, a single-electron transistor.

High throughput characterisation of magnetic fi lms

The functional magnetic properties of magnetic films depend on their main constituent phase and their microstructure (grain size, grain orientation, secondary and grain-boundary phases…). These in turn depend on the film’s chemical composition as well as the deposition and annealing conditions applied during film preparation. "Combinatorial" thin film studies, based on the preparation and characterisation of films having a composition gradient across their width, are being used for the high-throughput screening and optimization of a range of functional materials. With the aim to apply the combinatorial approach to the study of high performance hard magnetic materials, we have developed a high field scanning Magneto-Optic Kerr effect (MOKE) magnetometer, for non-destructive high-throughput magnetic characterization.
