Intercalation tailors superconductors

Πέμ, 13/10/2022 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 October 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-022-01797-4

Making monolayer superconductors creates interesting effects, but often decreases the transition temperature compared to 3D materials. Instead, intercalating molecules into a layered superconductor tailors the superconductivity with fewer trade-offs.

Tailored Ising superconductivity in intercalated bulk NbSe<sub>2</sub>

Πέμ, 13/10/2022 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 October 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-022-01778-7

The superconducting critical temperature of monolayer materials is often lower than their bulk counterparts. Now, intercalation is shown to induce two-dimensional superconducting properties while maintaining the bulk critical temperature.

Condensation and thermalization of an easy-plane ferromagnet in a spinor Bose gas

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 October 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-022-01779-6

A quantum simulation experiment reveals the thermalization of a ferromagnetic system realized with a one-dimensional spinor Bose gas, providing quantitative insights into the condensation dynamics of large magnetic systems.

Proton spin structure and generalized polarizabilities in the strong quantum chromodynamics regime

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 October 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-022-01781-y

Measurements of the proton’s generalized spin polarizabilities provide discriminating power between effective descriptions of the strong interaction at low energy.

Many-body Hilbert space scarring on a superconducting processor

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 October 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-022-01784-9

Many-body quantum systems that escape thermalization are promising candidates for quantum information applications. A weak-ergodicity-breaking mechanism—quantum scarring—has now been observed with superconducting qubits in unconstrained models.

Magnetometry goes nuclear

Nature Physics, Published online: 12 October 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-022-01798-3

Quantum sensing that uses electron spins in diamond can perform precise magnetic field measurements but does not work well at high magnetic fields. An alternative approach involving the spins of carbon-13 nuclei can operate in the high-field regime.

Understanding the formation of gas bubbles at liquid–liquid interfaces

Πέμ, 06/10/2022 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 06 October 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-022-01765-y

The formation of bubbles at liquid–liquid interfaces is challenging to explain because gas pockets cannot be stabilized by cracks on solid impurities. Experiments show that a difference in the gas solubilities of two immiscible liquids provides a gas reservoir, which allows gas to accumulate at the interface, leading to bubble formation.

A historic match for nuclei and neutron stars

Nature Physics, Published online: 06 October 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-022-01782-x

Bayesian history matching is a statistical tool used to calibrate complex numerical models. Now, it has been applied to first-principles simulations of several nuclei, including 208Pb, whose properties are linked to the interior of neutron stars.

Many important cellular structures in the body are curved at the scale of multiple cell lengths. Cells respond collectively to this curvature, and it influences their migration during development and growth.

Exotic Kondo effect induced by spinons in a quantum spin liquid

Πέμ, 29/09/2022 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 29 September 2022; doi:10.1038/s41567-022-01752-3

Evidence for an exotic form of the Kondo effect has been obtained by placing magnetic atoms on single-layer 1T-TaSe2, which is a quantum spin liquid candidate. Unlike conventional Kondo screening, which arises from conduction electrons in a metal, the Kondo effect in 1T-TaSe2 arises from charge-neutral particles known as spinons.
