MnTa2N4: A Ternary Nitride Spinel with a Strong Magnetic Frustration

Rafael Trócoli, Carlos Frontera, Judith Oró-Solé, Clemens Ritter, Pere Alemany, Enric Canadell, M. Rosa Palacín, Josep Fontcuberta, and Amparo Fuertes
Magnetic frustration results from competing magnetic interactions and leads to unusual ground states, ranging from non-collinear magnetic orders to spin liquids (SLs), opening the path to new physics and emerging properties. We report the engineered magnetic interaction design and synthesis of the new ternary nitride MnTa2N4 with a normal spinel structure, where the magnetic cations Mn2+ occupy exclusively the tetrahedral sites forming a diamond lattice.

Efficient photovoltaics: more (light) with less (material)

Absorb more light while using less material: This constitutes one of the most complicated milestones in the field of organic photovoltaics due to its practical implications: improving the efficiency of solar cells, (potentially) their stability and their semi-transparency to the human eye. Now, the achievement of such milestone seems to be closer than ever.
