Dr Philipp Niklowitz is awarded studentship grant

Posted on 14/11/2013

Diamond Lightsource at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus

Dr Philipp Niklowitz has been awarded a grant from Diamond Light Source Ltd for the project entitled: 'Pressure-induced quantum phase transitions in transition-metal based correlated magnets'.

Dr Niklowitz comments: “The Quantum Matter Group is delighted to extend its collaboration with Diamond Light Source by a second joint PhD Studentship.  James Poulten will join fellow PhD student, Terence Giles, in providing a link between the RHUL High-Pressure Lab and Extreme Conditions Beamline I15 and its principle beamline scientist Dr Heribert Wilhelm at Diamond.  The collaboration has the benefit of combining our in-house measurements of pressure-tuned magnetic, thermodynamic and transport properties with synchrotron based simultaneous high-pressure and low-temperature structure determination at Diamond.  In this way we obtain comprehensive insight into the physics of exciting unconventional magnets and superconductors."
