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.

The topological nature of the surface states in SmB6 is exposed by means of scanning tunneling spectroscopy on samples with magnetic substituents or by using magnetic tunneling tips. These local measurements are complemented by global transport measurements on identical samples.
