Realization of a Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid in YbAlO3

February 18, 2019
An international research team from Germany, USA, China and Ukraine performed comprehensive spectroscopic and thermodynamic measurements of the new quasi-1D magnet, YbAlO3. Their study shows, that 4f-based magnets can provide an excellent realization of different aspects of quasi-1D quantum physics, such as quantum criticality and a Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid state.

High pressure orders electrons

December 10, 2018
High-temperature superconductors can transport electrical energy without losses. However, a rigid charge order prevents superconductivity. In an international collaboration, researchers have studied the competing states with high-resolution inelastic X-ray scattering and found that high uniaxial pressure orders the electrons. Their study provides new insights into the function of electronically correlated materials. [more]

Solving a new puzzle for the first heavy fermion superconductor

May 17, 2018
The first heavy-fermion superconductor CeCu2Si2 was thought to have d-wave gap with node, until recent new measurements evident a fully opened gap. Recently, scientists from MPI-CPfS, Zhejiang University, Rice University and the University of Augsburg found a resolution to this puzzle based on measurements of the London penetration depth, which reconcile the d-wave pairing symmetry and nodeless gap structure.
