A material already known for its unique behavior is found to carry current in a way never before observed.
Experiment shows that emergent quantum fluid behavior of helium-3 confined to one dimension is observable using special low-temperature NMR techniques.
Efstratios Manousakis is recognized for his important contributions to computational physics.
Researchers discover that Sr1-yMn1-zSb2 (y,z < 0.1) is a so-called Weyl material that holds great promise for building devices that require far less power.
Observing growth processes in classical alloys is extremely difficult; scientists overcame this by studying quantum systems.
This area of research could help scientists understand high-temperature superconductivity and other mysteries.
A novel approach combining pulsed field optical FBG strain measurements in world-class magnets, with Density Functional based calculations to pinpoint the peculiar nanopantograph mechanism behind the magnetoelastic coupling, allows researchers to conclude that magnetic field and pressure are alternative ways to tune the quantum properties of the Shastry-Sutherland compound SrCu2(BO3)2
If you think it’s time you learned more about quantum physics, come to the MagLab’s Science Café on Sept. 30.
New physics has had to be invoked to explain the existence of exotic quantum Hall states such as the n =5/2 and 7/2 states. Recent progress in fabrication of high-quality low-density samples allows one to probe these states in a new regime where the electron-electron interactions are strong. The results reveal the existence of anisotropic transport for n = 7/2 in a high-quality very dilute 2D electron system. The new behavior is attributed to a large Landau level mixing effect that perturbs the pairing stability of composite fermions in the dilute limit.
MagLab scientist Tim Murphy will talk about extremely cold temperatures and why physicists into quantum mechanics really dig them.
