Exotic Magnetic Orders and Their Interplay with Superconductivity
Superconductivity represents one of the most important scientific discoveries of the 20th century. The practical applications are numerous ranging from clean energy storage and MRI machines to quantum computers. However, the low temperatures required for superconductivity prohibits many practical applications. The more recent discovery of high-temperature superconductors, with superconducting transition temperatures above 100~K, has led to the hope that superconductivity at room-temperature migh...

In this project the phase diagram of TbPO 4 has been investigated using neutron scattering at both E4 at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and at RITA-II at the Paul Scherrer Institute. Especially the presumed spin flop phase has been investigated in much more detail than previously. The reflection profiles of the structural peaks (020) and (220) were seen to split into respectively three and two peaks in this phase, which is inconsistent with a spin flop phase. The exact nature of the phase has not been...

Ultrafast Dynamics in
Photoexcited Iron-Carbene Molecules – an X-ray Study

This M.Sc. thesis describes the analysis of time resolved X-ray di↵use scattering data with sub-picosecond time resolution. Through the analysis, I have managed to describe the femtosecond structural dynamics of the iron molecule CAB21, which is a promising photosensitizer candidate due to the very long lifetime of the relevant metal-to-igandcharger-transfer (MLCT) state.
In this project, I have investigated the photoinduced structural changes of CAB2 in solution and it was shown to return to the ground state through the population of two excited states, a ...

An X-Ray Scattering Study of Novel Diblock Copolymers and DPD Simulation Study of Polymer Stars

This thesis aims to investigate a novel diblock copolymer using X-ray scattering and the application of dissipative particle dynamics simulations on polymers with a star architecture.
The first part is based on small-angle X-ray scattering experiments on a novel organometallic diblock copolymer; poly(isoprene)-\textit{b}-poly(ferrocenyl-methyl methacrylate) of different molecular volumes and compositions. The aim is to examine whether or not the polymer exhibit well-ordered structure in the bulk and to determine the Flory-Huggins interaction parameter between the blocks. The structure of the diblock copolymer was determined by evaluating the relative distance between observed...

This thesis is composed of two interconnected parts, the growth of high temperaturecuprate superconducting single crystals, La2xSrxCuO4, using the Travelling Solvent Floating zone method, and the investigation of their morphological, electrical and magnetic properties using various techniques, in particular neutron scattering.

The results from three neutron scattering experiments are presented. In the first experiment the transition temperature between the low temperature orthorhombic and the high temperature tetragonal phases was us...

The results of this thesis can be divided into two parts, one concerning neutron scattering studies of low dimensional magnetic systems and one concerning neutron optics for the European Spallation Source (ESS).
In the part concerning low dimensional magnetic systems, three aspects of the dy- namics of CoCl2 · 2 D2O have been investigated with neutron scattering experiments.
CoCl2 · 2 D2O can be considered a quasi one dimensional Ising system. This means, that it is a near ideal model material for investigating low dimensional magnetic phenomena....

A rudimentary introduction to the scattering framework as well as explanation of magnetic structures and their excitations will be presented. In order to understand neutron scattering and instrumentation an introduction will be given with an emphasis on the triple axis spectrometer and its properties.
The main focus of this thesis is the writing of a neutron scattering data treatment software package for the indirect geometry time of flight setup. This software includes the conversion and reduction necessary to treat the produced data and a handful of tools for visualization and fitting. Despite pure core functionality an emphasis is laid on usability and ease of use as these properties are essential promotion of the program. Further features are of great interest especially in the statistica...

Software for simulation and design of neutron scattering instrumentation


The experimental technique of Neutron Scattering is constantly evolving through advances in sources and instrumentation. The latest challenges and opportunities are posed by the European Spallation Source currently under construction in Lund, as both the source dimensions and time structure are far from conventional choices.
Simulation of neutron scattering instrumentation is used when designing instrumentation, but also to understand instrumental effects on the measured scattering da...

Title: One-point Functions in AdS/dCFT and Integrability
Abstract: Super Yang-Mills with a co-dimension one defect is studied, in particular, the field theory setup that arises in the D3-probe-D5 brane construction of the Karch-Randal idea. We look at the case where k ≥ 2 D3-branes are absorbed by the D5, giving rise to a domain wall defect that separates the field theory into an SU(N − k) theory and a broken SU(N) theory. The defect allows for interesting one-point functions in the SU(2) sub-sector already at tree-level. One-point functions in this s...

Title: Is there a multiverse?
The idea that ours is just one of many universes has been widely debated since its introduction in the 1980's.  Its necessary relation to the anthropic principle is one source of controversy.  I will review the arguments and issues confronting the multiverse, and present a simple theory that gives a new mechanism for generating a multiverse.

Evaluation of the breath-hold approach in proton therapy of lung tumors

Proton therapy has the potential to improve the treatment effect as compared to conventional radiation therapy for lung cancer patients. However, the proton therapy delivery is prone to uncertainties caused by anatomical changes and motion during the treatment and between the treatment fractions which may compromise its effectiveness. Breath-hold has been suggested as a motion management technique to mitigate the effect of this motion. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the robustness of ...

Jürgen Schukraft, CERN, will give a talk entitled:
Highlights from 30 years of ultra-relativistic heavy ion physics
Abstract: In the autumn of 1986, the new field of ultra-relativistic heavy ion physics was born with first experiments starting simultaneously at the CERN SPS and Brookhaven AGS accelerators, to study strongly interacting matter under extreme conditions of high temperature and/or high matter density using collisions of heavy nuclei. QCD predicts that at sufficiently high energy density there will be a transition from ordinary hadronic matter to a plasma of deconfined quarks and gluons - a transition whic...
