Good vibrations give electrons excitations that rock an insulator to go metallic
For more than 50 years, scientists have debated what turns particular oxide insulators, in which electrons barely move, into metals, in which electrons flow freely. Some scientists sided with Nobel Prize-winning ...
What happens when ultracold atomic spins are trapped in an optical lattice structure
Every electrical device, from a simple lightbulb to the latest microchips, is enabled by the movement of electrical charge, or current. The nascent field of 'spintronics' taps into a different electronic ...
