Excess resistivity in graphene superlattices caused by umklapp electron–electron scattering

Excess resistivity in graphene superlattices caused by umklapp electron–electron scattering, Published online: 15 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0278-6

An increase in electrical resistance caused by the fundamental process of electrons scattering off of each other (umklapp scattering) is observed in graphene superlattice devices. This will limit the electrical properties of such devices.

Low-temperature anomaly in disordered superconductors near Bc2 as a vortex-glass property

Low-temperature anomaly in disordered superconductors near <i>B</i><sub>c2</sub> as a vortex-glass property, Published online: 08 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0294-6

An anomalous upturn of the critical field at low temperature observed in disordered superconductors has long puzzled researchers. A joint experimental and theoretical study suggests that the origin of the anomaly lies in the physics of vortex glasses.

Selective breakdown of phonon quasiparticles across superionic transition in CuCrSe2

Selective breakdown of phonon quasiparticles across superionic transition in CuCrSe<sub>2</sub>, Published online: 08 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0298-2

Neutron and X-ray scattering studies combined with first-principles calculations suggest that the large, liquid-like ionic mobility in the canonical superionic crystal CuCrSe2 is due to anharmonic phonon dynamics.

Charge trapping and super-Poissonian noise centres in a cuprate superconductor, Published online: 08 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0300-z

A new noise spectroscopy technique shows that charges localized as polarons trapped at impurity sites mediate perpendicular ‘c-axis’ electronic transport in cuprate superconductors.

New horizons towards thermalization, Published online: 03 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0326-2

Ideas from theorists in fields as disparate as quantum gravity, quantum information and many-body localization are finding common ground, as we explore in this month’s Focus issue on quantum thermalization.

Does gravity come from quantum information?

Does gravity come from quantum information?, Published online: 03 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0297-3

Recent developments have seen concepts originally developed in quantum information theory, such as entanglement and quantum error correction, come to play a fundamental role in understanding quantum gravity.

Many-body localization and quantum thermalization

Many-body localization and quantum thermalization, Published online: 03 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0305-7

It is the common wisdom that time evolution of a many-body system leads to thermalization and washes away quantum correlations. But one class of system — referred to as many-body localized — defy this expectation.

Quantitative tools for measuring the propagation of information through quantum many-body systems, originally developed to study quantum chaos, have recently found many new applications from black holes to disordered spin systems.

Characterization of the shape-staggering effect in mercury nuclei

Characterization of the shape-staggering effect in mercury nuclei, Published online: 01 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0292-8

Spectroscopy and shell model calculations reveal the 181Hg isotope as the endpoint of the shape-staggering of Hg nuclei, a consequence of neutron removal which arises from the interplay of single-particle and collective degrees of freedom.

Biexciton fine structure in monolayer transition metal dichalcogenides, Published online: 01 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0282-x

Biexcitons play an important role in determining the optical properties of transition metal dichalcogenide monolayers, but their precise structure is poorly understood. Using a combination of ultrafast spectroscopy and theory, the origin of their fine structure is revealed.

Mercury isotopes are unique in exhibiting dramatic differences in their nuclear shapes. The analysis of over more than twenty Hg isotopes now shows that this follows from the influence of single-particle effects on the collective properties of a nucleus.

Phase transition lowering in dynamically compressed silicon

Phase transition lowering in dynamically compressed silicon, Published online: 24 September 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0290-x

In spite of its wide technological use, the response of silicon to rapid compression remains poorly understood. By means of an X-ray diffraction method based on a free-electron laser, the process for laser-driven dynamic shock compression is now elucidated in this system.
