The Hubbard model, used to understand electron behavior in numerous quantum materials, now shows us its stripes, and superconductivity too, in simulations for cuprate superconductors.
SLAC and Stanford scientists have made the first nickel oxide material that shows clear signs of superconductivity – the ability to transmit electrical current with no loss.
Combined with the lab’s LCLS X-ray laser, it’ll provide unprecedented atomic views of some of nature’s speediest processes.
In the decade since LCLS produced its first light, it has pushed boundaries in countless areas of discovery.
Researchers used a unique approach to learn more about what happens to silicon under intense pressure.
X-ray laser snapshots give scientists a new tool for probing trillionths-of-a-second atomic motions in 2-D materials
Watching electrons sprint between atomically thin layers of material will shed light on the fundamental workings of semiconductors, solar cells and other key technologies.
Ultrafast manipulation of material properties with light could stimulate the development of novel electronics, including quantum computers.
Revealed for the first time by a new X-ray laser technique, their surprisingly unruly response has profound implications for designing and controlling materials.
Two studies led by SLAC and Stanford capture electron “sound waves” and identify a positive feedback loop that may boost superconducting temperatures .
