In our new publication we report a unique observation of non-conventional twins in 10M modulated Ni-Mn-Ga martensite. The non-conventional twinning system, i.e. the twinning where neither the shearing vector nor the twinning plane has rational indices, was previously predicted theoretically,
Nearly all members of our Department of Magnetic Measurements and Materials joined together in (maybe tradition-setting) Christmas bowling, see photograph below. We enjoyed great evening with nearly no science discussed for this time.
