PRB kaleidoscope!

Structure of a BiFeO3/LaFeO3 1/1 superlattice epitaxially grown on (001)-SrTiO3. [Z. Zanolli, J. C. Wojdeł, J. Íñiguez, and Ph. Ghosez, Phys. Rev. B 88, 060102 (2013)]

This figure of my paper “Electric control of the magnetization in BiFeO3/LaFeO3 superlattices” has been selected as one of the PRB Kaleidoscope images for August 2013! I’m glad they liked it!

Kaleidoscope is for promoting interest in the aesthetics of physics. I believe this is important for a number of reasons. First, because a beautiful image attracts interest and curiosity. A well-designed figure can make understandable to non-experts’ audience the main message hidden in very complex phenomena. We remember images more easily  than lengthy sentences or equations. Visualization is the key for understanding, at least for myself.

    That reminds me of something I’m working on… Nice!


  2. Looks interesting. I have worked with 12 atoms metallic nanoclusters + metallic CNTs… not that far, indeed. The interesting part comes when the clusters are magnetic 😉
