Naturally quantum critical material identified

In what researchers are calling a “dream system,” an exotic new superconductor based on the element ytterbium appears to exist in aquantum critical state naturally; a highly desirable property that could have profound implications for the manufacture of superconductors and electronics. In a paper published in the journal Science, the University of Tokyo and Rutgers […]

The Strange Case Of The Missing Dimension




Scientists at Los Alamos have uncovered an intriguing quantum mechanical phenomenon while studying magnetic waves in barium copper silicate (a 2,500-year-old pigment known as Han purple). When newly grown crystals of the pigment were exposed to very high magnetic fields at very low temperatures; they entered a rarely observed state of matter. At the threshold […]
