Visiting scientists at CNR-SPIN L'Aquila
The National Research Council has traditionally given great attention to international and European cooperations and activities. In particular, it promotes the exchange of researchers for the development of jointly agreed research projects and of individual scientific activity with corresponding research organizations in all Countries and in all continents. It promotes the participation of Italian researchers in scientific activities carried out by foreign institutions.
At CNR-SPIN in L’Aquila, we often host european and non-european scientists for common research projects, through several source of funding, thus further promoting our international visibility.
- 04/10/2021- 22/12/2021 Dr. Rus Florina Stefania, from INCEMC (Timişoara, Romania), is visiting us under the HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme (HPC17Z5ZSB). We are grateful to Life, Health and Environmental Sciences Department of University of L’Aquila for hosting our researcher. We thank HCP-Europa3 for funding and HPC time.
- 04/10/2021- 22/12/2021 Dr. João Nuno Santos Gonçalves, from University of Aveiro and CICECO (Aveiro, Portugal), is visiting us under the HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme (HPC17T6HD5). We are grateful to Life, Health and Environmental Sciences Department of University of L’Aquila for hosting our researcher. We thank HCP-Europa3 for funding and HPC time.
- 07/01/2020– 31/03/2020 Mr. Kunihiro Yananose, a PhD candidate of Jaejun Yu’s group in Seoul National University (Seoul, South Korea), visited us under the support of National Research Foundation of Korea (2020R1F1A1066548) and Samsung Electronics. We studied the complex structure of the metal-organic frameworks and the interplay of the geometric chirality and spin-texture in twisted bilayer graphene.
- 02/11/2019-14/12/2019 Ms. Fei Wang, a PhD candidate of Prof. Coen de Graaf, from Universitat Rovira i Virgili (Tarragona, Spain) visited us working on 2D hybrid perovskites, namely a recently synthesized ferroelectric layered HOIP, (AMP)PbI4 (AMP=4-aminomethyl-piperidinium). During this collaboration, we show that the switching of the polarization reverses the molecular rotations, the spin-texture, and simultaneously toggles a pseudo-rotation of the Rashba anisotropy ellipse. Intriguingly, the Switchable Rashba Anisotropy (SRA) occurs by hybrid improper ferroelectricity. Great work Fei! Our study is published in npj Computational Materials, 6, 183 (2020). We also investigated the ferroelectricity in Preyssler-type polyoxometalates, and the study has been published in APL Materials, Special Topics “100 Years of Ferroelectricity — a Celebration”. This collaboration has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 713679 and from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili (URV).
- 03/11/2019 – 15/02/2020 Dr. João Nuno Santos Gonçalves, from University of Aveiro and CICECO (Aveiro, Portugal), visited us under the HPC-Europa3 Transnational Access programme (HPC174LF1R). We investigated Cu-based perovskite metal-organic frameworks, Two-dimensional metal dicyanamide frameworks and Chirality and Magnetocaloricity in GdFeTeO6 .We thank HCP-Europa3 for funding and HPC time. A scientific host point of view.
- 20/09/19-10/12/19 Mr. Yu Yuan Huang, bachelor student from Shanghai University (Shanghai, China) visited us for computational project on magnetic 2D materials. We thank funding from Shanghai University.
- 28/09/2019-02/11/2019 PhD candidate Hu Wentao, from Fudan University (FDU), visited us for a computational project on layered hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites. Our study has been published in Journal of Materials Chemistry C. We thank FDU for funding.
- 17/06/2019-28/06/2019 PhD candidate Yuan Shuron, from Queen Mary University of London (London, England) visited us under the bilateral project CNR-Royal Society (Nr IES/R1/180034). We thank RS for funding.
- 22/11/2018-23/01/2019 PhD candidate Ke Yang , from Fudan University (FDU), visited us for a computational project on optical and magneto-optical study of 2D magnetic bilayers. Our study has been published in ACS Applied Electronic Materials. In this study, we show, in particular, that for the mixed bilayer, even the AFM state has a nonvanishing magneto-optical Kerr Effect (MOKE) signal, which can be reversed if the AFM spins are flipped (e.g., from up-down to down-up). We thank FDU for funding.
- 08/11/2017-08/01/2018 PhD candidate Ke Yang , from Fudan University (FDU), visited us for a computational project on multiferroic properties of metal-organic framework with perovskites structure. We thank FDU for funding.
