 2019-08-1610:41 [FZJ-2019-04286] Journal Article Lounis, S. The chiral biquadratic pair interaction New journal of physics 21(8), 083015 (2019) [10.1088/1367-2630/ab35c9] Magnetic interactions underpin a plethora of magnetic states of matter, hence playing a central role both in fundamental physics and for future spintronic and quantum computation devices. The Dzyaloshinskii–Moriya interaction, ${{\bf{D}}}_{{ij}}\cdot ({{\bf{S}}}_{i}\times {{\bf{S}}}_{j})$, being chiral and driven by relativistic effects, leads to the stabilization of highly-noncollinear spin textures such as skyrmions, which thanks to their topological nature are promising building blocks for magnetic data storage and processing elements.

However, this prospect has been realized so far only for rigid spherical particles and remains limited for biological cells due to the complexity of cell dynamics and deformation in microfluidic flow [...] Published on 2019-07-26. Available in OpenAccess from 2020-07-26.: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-1312:23 [FZJ-2019-04214] Journal Article et al A Review of Post-combustion CO2 Capture Technologies from Coal-fired Power Plants Energy procedia 114, 650 - 665 (2017) [10.1016/j.egypro.2017.03.1209] Reducing CO2 emissions has become a worldwide research topic. Of all the sources of CO2 emissions, power plants burning fossil fuels, especially coals, account for a very large portion. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-1214:33 [FZJ-2019-04183] Journal Article Koruza, J. Influence of crystallographic structure on polarization reversal in polycrystalline ferroelectric/ferroelastic materials Journal of applied physics 125(17), 174101 - (2019) [10.1063/1.5081086] Polarization reversal is the most fundamental physical process in ferroelectrics and directly or indirectly influences all functional properties of these materials. While this process is influenced by various intrinsic material’s properties and external boundary conditions, arguably one of the most dominant parameters is the material’s crystallographic structure [...] Published on 2019-05-01. Available in OpenAccess from 2020-05-01.: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-1213:53 [FZJ-2019-04176] Journal Article et al Silicon and Iron as Resource-Efficient Anode Materials for Ambient-Temperature Metal-Air Batteries: A Review Materials 12(13), 2134 - (2019) [10.3390/ma12132134] Metal-air batteries provide a most promising battery technology given their outstanding potential energy densities, which are desirable for both stationary and mobile applications in a “beyond lithium-ion” battery market. Silicon- and iron-air batteries underwent less research and development compared to lithium- and zinc-air batteries [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-0908:42 [FZJ-2019-04156] Journal Article et al Occurrence of Soil Fungi in Antarctic Pristine Environments The presence of fungi in pristine Antarctic soils is of particular interest because of the diversity of this microbial group. However, the extreme conditions that coexist in Antarctica produce a strong selective pressure that could lead to the evolution of novel mechanisms for stress tolerance by indigenous microorganisms. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-0908:37 [FZJ-2019-04153] Journal Article et al Improved isotopic model based on 15 N tracing and Rayleigh-type isotope fractionation for simulating differential sources of N 2 O emissions in a clay grassland soil Rapid communications in mass spectrometry 33(5), 449 - 460 (2019) [10.1002/rcm.8374] RationaleIsotopic signatures of N2O can help distinguish between two sources (fertiliser N or endogenous soil N) of N2O emissions. The contribution of each source to N2O emissions after N‐application is difficult to determine. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-0908:26 [FZJ-2019-04150] Journal Article et al Combination of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Neutron Computed Tomography for Three-Dimensional Rhizosphere Imaging Vadose zone journal 18(1), (2019) [10.2136/vzj2018.09.0166] In situ investigations of the rhizosphere require high-resolution imaging techniques, which allow a look into the optically opaque soil compartment. We present the novel combination of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and neutron computed tomography (NCT) to achieve synergistic information such as water mobility in terms of three-dimensional (3D) relaxation time maps and total water content maps. [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA); 2019-08-0908:21 [FZJ-2019-04148] Journal Article et al Water Retention and Pore Size Distribution of a Biopolymeric-Amended Loam Soil Vadose zone journal 18(1), (2019) [10.2136/vzj201811.0205] The pore size distribution (PSD) of biopolymeric-amended soils is rarely investigated due to difficulties in its quantification using classical methods. In this study, we analyzed the impact of biopolymeric soil amendments on the PSD of a dryland loamy soil based on its physical and biological properties using a completely randomized design with four treatments consisting of two different dosages (10 and 5 g kg−1) of two different biopolymers, (chitosan [CH] and Arabic gum [AG]) plus a reference soil.

In the coastal Mekong Delta, farmers respond by shifting to more salinity tolerant agricultural production systems such as alternating rice-shrimp and permanent shrimp [...] OpenAccess: PDF PDF (PDFA);
