IFM big winner in WISE approved projects

In 2022 the research program approved its first ever PhD and Postdoc projects. Out of the 18 approved projects from LiU, nine came from IFM.

Things are heating up for superconductors

Researchers at Linköping University have, by way of a number of theoretical calculations, shown that magnesium diboride becomes superconductive at a higher temperature when it is stretched.

Björn Alling sees new opportunities for strengthening NSC

Björn Alling is the new director of the National Supercomputer Centre at Linköping University. One of his goals is to make more researchers aware of supercomputers as a resource. He also wants the NSC to grow, both nationally and internationally.

The quest for a deep understanding of iron and steels

Björn Alling have, together with colleagues and students, developed new methods for calculating mechanical properties of iron and steel all the way up to the temperatures when the metal glows from heat. The results are published in Physical Review B.

Revealing the inner working of magnetic materials

Björn Alling, researcher in theoretical physics at LiU, has, together with his colleagues, completed the task given to him by the Swedish Research Council in the autumn of 2014: Find out what happens inside magnetic materials at high temperatures.

Turning up the heat in quantum physics

With seven million Swedish crowns in his pocket, Björn Alling will put his mind to the most fundamental equations of physics: What happens in magnetic materials when things really heat up?
