We are recruiting and look for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher who is keen to do cutting edge research. This position is part of an EPSRC funded collaborative grant, CEQM, with investigators at the Universities of St Andrews and Edinburgh. … Continue reading
Our paper on imaging and manipulating magnetic order of FeTe in vector magnetic fields has appeared in Science Advances, see https://goo.gl/8f2v9c. It shows how we can use spin-polarized STM not only to investigate surface magnetic order, but also to manipulate … Continue reading
We will host the CMQM (Condensed Matter and Quantum Materials) meeting 2019 at the School of Physics and Astronomy, organized by the IOP. Through the CMQM conference we wish to provide a forum for the wider UK Condensed Matter Physics … Continue reading
A new way to engineer 1D surface states through kinetic stabilization. Never heard of this? – Read our paper at http://goo.gl/d9VPBr.
Our recent paper on the Discovery of a strain-stabilized smectic electronic order in LiFeAs is an Editors’ highlight in Nature Communications. Our work combines atomic-scale imaging by low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy with uniaxial strain. Straining the iron-based superconductor LiFeAs … Continue reading
The 2019 recruitment round for PhD positions has started! PhD positions are available through a number of routes, including through the School of Physics and Astronomy and the International Max Planck Research School. Our group works on development of cutting … Continue reading
We have recently launched a series of videos which explain our research. If you would like to learn more, please take a look at our YouTube channel. One of the videos is specifically about Scanning Tunneling Microscopy.
Our new center of designer quantum materials is featured on BBC today, see "Building the future one atom at a time" and in radio on “Good Morning Scotland”. If you want to learn more about our research, you may want … Continue reading
On Thursday, 8th of December, the Minister for Further Education, Higher Education and Science, Shirley-Anne Somerville, and the Principal of the University of St Andrews, Professor Sally Mapstone, opened a new center for Designer Quantum Materials. At the core of … Continue reading
Just coming back from our condensed matter retreat at the Burn, where we spend three days filled with talks and discussions.
