IQM Director Collin Broholm has entered the ring as part of a fun competition that pits four subatomic particles – neutron, proton, photon and electron – against one another, each one putting forward an argument about why it is THE BEST subatomic particle in the universe. Broholm joins a team of scientists and science writers […]
A recent IQM study of quantum spin fluctuations in Pr2Zr2O7 that was published in Physical Review Letter was highlighted by DOE. This was the thesis work of Jiajia Wen who is now at SLAC.

Congratulations to Shan Wu who won the best poster prize at the international conference on strongly correlated electron systems for her work on magnetic ordering near quantum criticality in CeNiAsO.
JHU will grow crystals as part of national bid to develop better materials for technology Johns Hopkins, Cornell, Princeton, and Clark Atlanta universities form a team of institutions that the agency chose for a $25 million program over five years. The new effort, dubbed PARADIM—Platform for the Accelerated Realization, Analysis and Discovery of Interface Materials—is […]
Peter Armitage has won the 2016 Ludwig Genzel Prize. The award is given to a young scientist for exceptional contributions to the field of condensed-matter spectroscopy. It is named after to Ludwig Genzel, whose scientific interests were in far-infrared spectroscopy.
Taking advantage of the opportunity of the March meeting of the APS in Baltimore, MD this spring, we are organizing a 2-day workshop on “Anomalous Transport in Multipolar and Topological Materials” at the Johns Hopkins University. Details are on the workshop website. The workshop is sponsored by the JSPS grant for innovative area “J-Physics” and by the […]
