How do electrons differ from holes in unconventional superconductors?

In a recent Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper, Marcin Wysokiński and Jan Kaczmarczyk theoretically investigate the electron–hole asymmetry of d-wave superconductivity driven by the non-local effects of correlations in the generalized single-band Hubbard model. 349 more words
