In a crystalline structure that locks a heavy atom in a metal cage, scientists find a key to materials that can turn heat into electricity, and vice versa.
"Kondo metamagnet" is first in a family of eccentric quantum crystals
Scientists found that the emergence of an exotic quantum mechanical phase in Ce1-xNdxCoIn5 is due to a shape change in the Fermi surface. This finding ran counter to theoretical arguments and has led investigators in new directions.
Scientists discovered how strong of a magnetic field was necessary to suppress superconductivity in a thin film of iron-selenium.
Team opens new path for understanding hidden order.
Examining the material samarium hexaboride, scientists discover seemingly contradictory properties and an exciting, new mystery for physicists.
Researchers working at the National MagLab have identified a material that behaves as a conductor and an insulator at the same time, challenging current understanding of how materials behave, and pointing to a new type of insulating state.
