Do you think STM is only a surface-sensitive probe? Read Christopher’s new preprint where we show magnetostriction measurements done in our vector-field STM and use it to map out the phase diagram of CeSb2. An exciting way to directly link bulk properties to the surface electronic structure.
Our paper on strain-stabilized (π,π) order at the surface of FeTe has appeared in Nano Letters (here), showing how in samples under uniaxial strain a new surface phase emerges, showing (π,π) charge order with only short-ranged magnetic order instead of the usual (π,0) magnetic order of FeTe.

Just back from 3 days of talks and discussions of the latest research in the CDQM.
Congratulations to Luke Rhodes, who was awarded an 1851 Fellowship to apply advanced spectroscopic methods to study quantum materials and unconventional superconductors subjected to strain.

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 community to meet for discussions and to present their research across the specialised disciplines. The conference is supported by a wide range of relevant Institute of Physics groups and we envision it to be the first of an annual series, which we hope will rapidly become established as a platform for the community to come together in the spirit of the former CMMP meetings.
The meeting will take place 3-5 July 2019 in St Andrews, featuring plenary talks by Jacqueline Bloch, Andre Geim, Laura Heyderman, Steve Simon, and Julie Staunton, invited talks in specialized sessions and a poster session.
A new way to engineer 1D surface states through kinetic stabilization. Never heard of this? – Read our paper at http://goo.gl/d9VPBr.
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 edge instrumentation for atomic scale studies of electronic structure, complex magnetic orders and unconventional superconductivity. The experiments are undertaken in ultra-low vibration labs.
