News from the Nanostructured Quantum Matter Group

Recent research suggested that hydrodynamic electron flow in 3D conductors was possible, but exactly how it happened or how to observe it remained unknown. Until now. 
A team of researchers from Harvard, MIT and the Max Planck Institute Chemical Physics of Solids developed a theory to explain how hydrodynamic electron flow could occur in 3D materials and observed it for the first time using a new imaging technique. more

The quasi-quantized Hall effect is a three-dimensional relative of the Quantum Hall effect in two-dimensional systems. more

Traditionally, the quantum Hall effect has exclusive been associated with two-dimensional metals. Now, scientists at the MPI CPfS found signatures of an unconventional Hall response in the quantum limit of the bulk metal HfTe5, adjacent to the three-dimensional quantum Hall effect of a single electron band at low magnetic fields. more

Johannes Gooth, Leiter der unabhängigen Max-Planck-Forschungsgruppe „Nanostrukturierte Quantenmaterie“ am MPI für Chemische Physik fester Stoffe in Dresden, erhält den Rudolf-Kaiser-Preis für den „erstmaligen experimentellen Nachweis sowie die weitergehende Charakterisierung der axialen Gravitations-Anomalie in Weyl-Halbmetallen“. more
