Intercalation tailors superconductors

Thu, 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>

Thu, 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

Thu, 13/10/2022 - 00:00

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

Thu, 13/10/2022 - 00:00

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

Thu, 13/10/2022 - 00:00

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

Wed, 12/10/2022 - 00:00

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.
