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.

Lithium-ion diffusion pathways within new battery-cathode materials

Li-ion batteries form a basic component on which our world of mobile electronics and communication is built. And they are increasingly used in high power applications such as electric vehicles and the storage of electricity from solar and other renewable power sources. In these batteries, the cathode is a lithium-containing compound. During a battery’s charging and discharging, Li+ ions are alternately extracted from and reinserted in the cathode as they move through the electrolyte to the anode and back. The cathode material must sustain wide variations of its Li+ ion content over many cycles. Full text.

From nanomaterials to the bulk, one instrument to characterize them all

In materials science, characterizing the materials goes along with synthesizing them. One of the best and fastest characterization techniques is X-ray diffraction. This technique has mostly been restricted to well crystallized, homogeneous powders or bulk materials. However, research projects at the Institut NEEL are now focusing on more complex materials, such as nanomaterials, ultrathin films and layers, or striped alloys. These challenging cases, as well as increased demand from our researchers, have called for a dramatic evolution of our instrumentation. Full text.
