Anvil-type NMR cell

We just started testing our new anvil-type high-pressure cell for the NMR experiment. With the tungsten-carbide anvils we expect to reach pressures up to 4 GPa.

Bending mercury stream with electrostatic force

One of our recent projects involved a detailed understanding of the mechanism behind bending of liquid streams in electrostatic potential. To test our understanding we performed two experiments, one with tap water, where conductivity is low, and the other with strongly conducting liquid – the mercury. Unfortunately, the explanation why the stream of water is…

nmrAna

nmrAna is a Matlab-based tool for analysis of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurements. The program allows to analyse the enitre series of measured spectra as a function of temperature and other parameters like Tau in case of spin-lattice time (T1) measurements. Authors Anton Potočnik (IJS, F5) Andraž Krajnc (KI) Peter Jeglič (IJS, F5) Tomaž Apih…

Unconventional superconductivity of A3C60

We are studying normal-state and superconducting properties of hyper-expanded A3C60 (A = K, Rb, Cs). We have shown that these materials resemble unconventional superconductors like cuprates. Intense research of normal-state and superconducting properties of these materials close to the metal-to-insulator transition is in progress. A.Y. Ganin, et al. Nature 2010.
