Unraveling quantum states of charge and spin in topological spintronics

August 11, 2017 - In the recent Nano Letters article, Prof. Nikolic, postdoctral fellow Dr. Kapildeb Dolui, visiting graduate student Juan Manuel Marmolejo-Tejada from Colombia and DPA alumni Dr. Po-Hao Chang, together with collaborators from Denmark and Croatia, have developed new computational approach offering a unique microscopic insight into quantum states of charge and spin at  topological-insulator/ferromagnetic-metal (TI/FM) interfaces.

UD Day in D.C. shows off astrophysics virtual reality

March 16, 2017 - From the heliosphere to the inner workings of the human brain, the richness of human culture, the way we get and consume energy and the all-fronts assault on disease, disorders, the effects of traumatic injury and human suffering, research at the University of Delaware touches life at just about every global address. For a few hours Wednesday, a sample of that broad expanse of work was on display in the Hart Senate Office Building.
