Floquet topological superconductivity with ultracold atoms

In a recent free-to-read Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter paper, Dr Mengnan Chen and his team studied the kicked Harper-Kitaev model, revealing the coexistence of both Floquet Majorana modes and quantum Hall chiral edge modes at the same sample boundary. 301 more words

Understanding high-temperature superconductivity in Fe-based superconductors

The mechanism of high-temperature superconductivity in Fe-based superconductors is still unclear. The upper critical field and its anisotropy are basic parameters which are crucial for understanding both the mechanism of superconductivity and its potential applications. 415 more words
