Thema Publishing advanced materials science with Wiley under the Projekt DEAL “Publish & Read” agreement – How to maximize your success!
Jos Lenders, Deputy Editor of Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, and Advanced Optical Materials at Wiley, will track important trends and developments in materials science publishing and the Advanced journals program. Together, these journals receive more than 100 submissions every day, and only around 15% make it to publication. So, what do editors do to select the very best papers, and what can authors do to optimize their chances of having their manuscripts accepted? Jos hopes to provide insight into these topics as well as some tips for your publication strategy. The talk will further include an update on Projekt DEAL, the “Publish & Read” agreement between Wiley and a consortium of over 700 German universities and research institutes, allowing scientists from those organizations to have access to and publish Open Access in all of Wiley’s journals. Anybody who is enthused about where scientific publishing will go next is welcome to join the seminar and discussion.

Thema MicroED: a versatile method for crystal structure determination
3D Electron diffraction (MicroED) is a well-known technique for structure determination of solids, which is especially advantageous for the study of micro- and nanocrystals. In contrast to imaging, it does not suffer significantly from lens aberrations, making sub-ångström resolution available even for non-corrected TEMs. The electron dose needed for ED is lower than those for imaging, and together with a short acquisition time it has an utmost importance for the study of beam sensitive materials. Several experimental protocols for the MicroED data collection exist, which share the common idea of sampling a sequence of diffraction patterns while the crystal is tilted around an arbitrary non-crystallographic axis. A number of practical considerations regarding 3D ED data collection automation, data processing and peculiarities of structure solution using dedicated programs for electron diffraction or modified X-ray packages will be discussed in my presentation.

Thema Spin-orbit torques in Tb/Co ferrimagnetic multilayers with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy
Ferrimagnetic materials are interesting candidates for future spintronics applications due to high frequency dynamics and low net magnetic moment. In my talk, I will present my research on perpendicularly magnetized ferrimagnetic Tb/Co multilayer systems grown on Pt. This heterostructure allows efficient manipulation of ferrimagnetic domains through spin-orbit torques induced by the heavy metal Pt. The latter firstly allows the generation of spin currents from charge currents and secondly breaks the system symmetry by introducing a non-collinear exchange interaction at the Pt/ferrimagnet interface. I will show how the stacking order of the Tb/Co layers dramatically changes the magnetization compensation temperature and how the layer thicknesses result in a different efficiency of the spin-orbit torques

Thema Topological invariants and perturbation theory in disordered and mesoscopic systems using the kernel polynomial method
We present new algorithms based on the kernel polynomial method, that allow us to study the topology and response of samples with more than 10^7 degrees of freedom. We calculate topological invariants of bulk disordered insulators, such as alloys, quasicrystals, and amorphous systems. In particular, we apply our method to the mirror Chern number using an atomistic model of PbSnTe alloy and tighten the critical concentration for the phase transition. We also develop the hybrid kernel polynomial method, which allows accurate and efficient treatment of both subgap and continuum states. We use this approach to improve the computation of supercurrent and inductance in a Josephson junction, and the construction of perturbative effective Hamiltonians describing the interaction of spin qubits defined in a two dimensional electron gas.
