Propagating “charge density wave” fluctuations are seen in superconducting copper oxides for the first time
SLAC study shows “pseudogap” phase hoards electrons that might otherwise conduct electricity with 100 percent efficiency.
Findings unequivocally link two "personality" changes of electrons at critical point.
Advanced x-ray technique reveals surprising quantum excitations that persist through materials with or without superconductivity.
New study reveals unexpected disappearance of superconducting fluctuations at super-cold temperatures.
