Research Infrastructure Fellow to build VERITAS beamline at MAX IV
Researcher Marcus Agåker has been awarded a "Research Infrastructure Fellow" by the Swedish Strategic Foundation (SSF), to build the VERITAS beamline at the MAX IV facility in Lund. VERITAS is a bealime for Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) in the soft X-ray regime, a technique that has been pionered in Uppsala. The grant is 15 million Swedish crowns for a period of 5 years.
Forskaren Markus Agåker har utsetts till "Research Infrastructure Fellow" av Stiftelsen för Strategist Forskning (SSF) för att bygga VERITAS strålröret vid anlägningen MAX IV i Lund. VERITAS är ett strålrör för resonant inelastisk röntgenspridning (RIXS) i det mjuka röntgenområdet, en teknik som har utvecklats i Uppsala. Bidraget är på 15 miljoner kronor under en period på 5 år.
Research: On the hunt for new and peculiar superconductors
Annica Black-Schaffer wants to understand unconventional superconductors. The fact that she recently received the prestigious ERC Starting Grant and is a former recipient of grants from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation is a testament to the interest in her research. One beckoning application is tomorrow’s supercomputers.
Research: Measuring magnetism in 3D
A team of researchers from Uppsala University, China and Germany have substantially extended the possibilities of an experimental technique called EMCD, that is used for measuring magnetism in materials. The results were published in Nature Communications on May 15 2017.

Press release: Magnetic order in a two-dimensional molecular chessboard
Achieving magnetic order in low-dimensional systems consisting of only one or two dimensions has been a research goal for some time. In a new study published in the journal Nature Communications, Uppsala researchers show that magnetic order can be created in a two-dimensional chessboard lattice consisting of organometallic molecules that are only one atomic layer thick.
Education: New study program for people newly arrived in Sweden
In collaboration with the municipality of Uppsala and the Department of Scandinavian languages, the Department of Physics and Astronomy is organising a preparatory year for those newly arrived in Uppsala who would like to study at the university.
Press release: A new type of nano-sensor detects DNA building blocks
Researchers from Uppsala University and Brazil have developed a new type of nano-sensor that can detect single molecules. The nano-sensor, comprising a combination of two different materials, has been used to identify the different building blocks in DNA.
