Expertise

The group concept targets the directed design of new multifunctional materials

 

In general the material class under investigations - Heusler compounds with X2YZ with L21 and XYZ with C1b structure type  – show the same broad variety of properties comparable to the perovskites, including topological insulators, Kondo behaviour, non-centrosymmetric superconductivity and conventional, tunable magnetic properties, non-collinear magnetism, semiconductivity, magnetoresistance effects, Li-ion-conductivity and other physical properties. Different to the perovskites only a few groups mainly in Germany and Japan are working on this class of materials.
