Light-induced superconductivity under high pressure

14-May-2018

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one ...

Superconductors earn their stripes

06-Feb-2018

New Terahertz techniques help to detect striped superconductivity above the superconducting transition temperature in cuprates. Understanding high temperature superconductivity (high Tc) has been a long-standing challenge since its discovery in copper oxide compounds in 1986. A key issue in ...

Studying fundamental particles in materials

First observation of Dirac fermions in graphene

19-Jan-2017

Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity to observe particle properties that have no realization in elementary particles. In the present study, an international research team led ...
