October 19, 2022

Maia G. Vergniory, a researcher in our department of Solid State Chemistry, has recently been elected as APS Fellow by the American Physical Society (APS) for her pioneering work developing a new theory known as Topological Quantum Chemistry that has allowed to identify thousands of new topological materials. more

Changing direction: Research team discovers switchable electronic chirality in an achiral Kagome superconductor<br /> 

A team of researchers from MPI for Chemical Physics of Solids and the MPI for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in collaboration with researchers from Switzerland and Spain has reported the first observation in a structurally achiral crystal, the Kagome superconductor CsV3Sb5. Their work has been published in the current issue of Nature. more

The Superconductivity of Sr<sub>2</sub>RuO<sub>4</sub> Under c-Axis Uniaxial Stress

A team of scientists from the MPI CPFS and Stockholm, Tsukuba, Oxford, Toronto, St Andrews and Birmingham combined focused ion beam microstructuring and uniaxial pressure to achieve a record value of uniaxial pressure for the unconventional superconductor Sr2RuO4 and found that the superconducting state of Sr2RuO4 evolved surprisingly. more

Ultra-high precision thermodynamics of unconventional superconductivity

Working with a new experimental technique called the ac elastocaloric effect, a team of scientists from Dresden, Karlsruhe, St Andrews, Cornell, Tsukuba and Stanford has mapped out the so-called phase diagram of the unconventional superconductor Sr2RuO4. The results narrow down the on-going, 25 years quest to understand the superconductivity of Sr2RuO4 and set a benchmark for future work. more

A proof of odd-parity superconductivity

Observations reveal the angle dependence of the magnetic field needed to suppress superconductivity in CeRh2As2. Uniquely, the behavior of “odd parity” superconductors is revealed.  more

Electrons in a crystal exhibit linked and knotted quantum twists

New experiments reveal an elaborate linked quantum structure.


Everything is Topological

An international research team has discovered that topological electronic states are present in nearly every known material for every electron in the crystal configuration. Appearing this week in Science, the team’s discovery of ubiquitous band topology has motivated re-examining previous experimental data for overlooked topological features, and suggests that the century-old field of band theory should be restructured, with topology joining chemistry and geometry on equal footing.

A ‘fast lane’ for electrons<br /> 

The study of ultra-pure materials still has many ways to surprise and delight! For delafossite metals it was shown that wires sculpted from the same single crystal have very different resistivities depending on the angle at which they are cut.  From the fundamental physics point of view, the laws of bulk resistivity are being broken.
