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: Ultra Fast Change of Volume Discovered in Magnetic Materials
All magnetic materials show a change of volume if their magnetization changes, but how the process takes place on the shortest time scales is still a mystery. To understand how magnetic changes of volume occur inside the femtosecond range (10-15s) one needs both new measurement methods and novel theories. An international collaboration of both experimental and theoretical research groups has now managed to come a step closer to the solution of this riddle.
Research Funding: Grants for renewable-energy research
The Swedish Research Council and the Swedish Energy Agency are collaborating in an initiative to provide project grants for energy-oriented basic research. Which projects to fund in the 2017 call for applications has now been decided. Uppsala University is receiving grants for four projects.
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.
