Please find below our latest newsletter, with highlights and news linked to the MARVEL community.
This month, read about how the temperature dependence of the energy band gap in zirconium pentatelluride adds to evidence that ZrTe5 is a weak topological insulator.
The MARVEL Junior Seminar series — now held in hybrid mode in order to maintain in-person contacts and allow off-campus attendees to follow the seminars remotely — is continuing, with the next installment on April 20. Also mark your calendars for the upcoming MARVEL Distinguished Lectures by Prof. Claudia Felser (May 2) and Prof. Emmanouil Kioupakis (June 20).
Note that the deadline for INSPIRE Potentials fellowships is April 15. You are encouraged to circulate the information, for example with the video made by a former INSPIRE fellow to present the program. Several INSPIRE fellows are also introduced this week as part of the #NCCRWomen campaign, and you can read their interviews.
MARVEL's achievements have been showcased in talks, posters and demos at this week's successful SNSF Site Visit (group picture below). Congratulations to all!
