New Findings on Quasiparticle Mass Enhancement
The study sheds light on the role of quasiparticle mass enhancement near a quantum critical point in a leading family of high-temperature superconductors.
Exotic Quantum Particle Observed in Bilayer Graphene
Proving a 30-year-old theory called the even-denominator fractional quantum Hall state, the research bolsters the material’s potential for quantum computation.
Heavy Element Defies Simple Quantum Mechanics
Chemists find that the simple theory of quantum mechanics breaks down under the weight of berkelium.
Stuck with Neodymium?
Using high-field electromagnets, scientists explore a promising alternative to widely used, but increasingly expensive, neodymium-based permanent magnets.
Scientists use our magnets to explore semiconductors, superconductors, newly-grown crystals, buckyballs and materials from the natural world — research that reveals the secret workings of materials and empowers us to develop new technologies.
Scientists here are working to optimize petroleum refining, advance potential bio-fuels such as pine needles and algae, and fundamentally change the way we store and deliver energy by developing better batteries.
