A team of physicists from the Institute of Physics PAS and SOLARIS Centre has observed a topological Lifshitz transition in the Weyl semimetal NbP by decorating its surface with heavy elements (Pb or Nb). Weyl points in the bulk and Fermi arcs on the surface of Weyl semimetals are the center of interest to material physicists and technology specialists.Read More o Dramatic Fermi surface modification in niobium phosphide – research on new materials
A groundbreaking study that allows the creation of 3D maps of bond orientations in a sample has been published by the CIRI beamline team in the prestigious JACS journal. In-depth characterization of a sample, while not destroying the research material, is crucial for scientists in material and life sciences and will allow previously unattainable information to be extracted from complex systems.Read More o Are you oriented?

The systemic consequences of disorder in magnetically self-organized topological MnBi2Te4/(Bi2Te3)n superlattices
In a recent publication in 2D Materials, users of SOLARIS Centre highlight the critical importance of different disorder metrics in a new platform for quantum anomalous Hall (QAH) effect, MnBi2Te4/(Bi2Te3)n self-organized magnetic topological insulator. The material has recently been attracting increasing attention also as a perspective for axion-insulator phase. A major part of the study has been conducted using the angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy beamline (URANOS, former UARPES) at Synchrotron SOLARIS.Read More o The systemic consequences of disorder in magnetically self-organized topological MnBi2Te4/(Bi2Te3)n superlattices
SOLARIS Centre users from the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology (of the Jagiellonian University, together with Australian, Turkish and Canadian colleagues, have found a link between defects in the cellular protein production machinery and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs), characterized by an inability to reach cognitive and motor milestones. Key studies in this publication were conducted using Cryo-EM microscopes located at our center.Read More o What role does a tRNA modification complex, called Elongator, play in brain development?
A team of scientists from Zagreb, Wien, Lausanne and Krakow led by Dr. Eduard Tutiš has investigated an antiferromagnetic layered compound Co1/3NbS2 - an example of the transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD), having complex magnetic structure.Read More o Role of intercalated cobalt in the electronic structure of Co1/3NbS2
