Magneto-optical diagnostic method for malaria
A highly sensitive optical method developed for malaria diagnosis by our group has received a broad media coverage. Following the interview with I. Kézsmárki, which appeared in Physics World, our results were also reported in several scientific news (Physics Today, MIT Technology Review, Medical news, Elsevier’s Global Malaria Resource) and in the public media.

Spins induce, switch and probe chirality
Our results about magnetically induced and switched chirality of matter, and its detection via spin excitations were the cover story for the October issue of Nature Physics. This publication was also highlighted by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
The wide range of potential applications in optical communication technologies, such as directional light switches, circulators and magnetically controllable polarization rotators, attracted the attention of the public media as well. Both the Hungarian and Japan press reported about the results. Read more here.
Exotic spin waves in multiferroic materials
In the spin wave spectra of multiferroic Ba2CoGe2O7 we assigned several spin excitations beyond the two conventional magnon modes expected for such a two-sublattice Neel antiferromagnet. A multiboson spin-wave theory developed by Dr. K. Penc and Dr. J. Romhányi captures the additional unconventional spin-stretching modes and their behaviour even in strong magnetic fields. The results were highlighted by the European Magnetic Field Laboratory. Read more here.
