Professor Morten Eskildsen is a co-author on a comprehensive review of magnetic small-angle neutron scattering published in Rev. Mod. Phys. March 4. Eskildsen contributed a section on studies of superconducting vortices which can be used as sensitive probes of unconventional superconductivity. In addition, vortices constitute its own kind of “matter” which, in addition to being of fundamental interest, is a limiting factor for practical applications of superconductors.
Celebrating its 90th anniversary, Rev. Mod. Phys. is the world’s premier physics review journal and the most highly cited Physical Review publication. Written by leading international researchers, it publishes in-depth essays provide outstanding coverage of a topic and give context and background for current research trends.
