Influence of a nematic phase on high-temperature superconductivity

National MagLab - January 2020 CMS science highlight A nematic phase is where the molecular/atomic dynamics show elements of both liquids and solids, like in liquid crystal displays on digital watches or calculators. Using high magnetic fields and high pressure, researchers probed the electronic states of an iron-based superconductor and found that its nematic state weakened superconductivity.Read more.
