More than 100 years have passed since the discovery of superconductivity. In the meantime this fascinating phenomenon has provided the basis for a wide range of important applications. Our fundamental understanding of superconductivity has been based on the theory of Bardeen, Cooper, and Schrieffer known as BCS which was published in 1957. Despite being a well-established field in quantum...

Evolved stars are the factories of interstellar dust. This dust is injected into the interstellar medium and plays a key role in the evolution of astronomical objects from galaxies to the embryos of planets. However, the processes involved in dust formation and evolution are still a mystery. The increased angular resolution of the new generation of large telescopes, is providing for the first...

During the last decade, in the field of multiferroic materials, several systems have shown the coexistence of electric and magnetic orders with coupling between them (so-called magnetoelectric coupling). In the particular class of composite multiferroics, where magnetoelectric coupling takes place owing to mechanical coupling (strain mediated) between a ferroelectric material and a...
