The Gentleman Laureate (Sir Anthony Leggett)

The Nobel Prize has always vaguely irritated me. The idea that one’s entire research career might somehow be neatly defined by what a bunch of Swedes happen to find noteworthy has long struck me as arbitrary at best and, in my darker moments, a sad commentary on our need for self-affirmation. 1,282 more words

U of Cambridge: Awakening Graphene's 'Sleeping-Giant' Superconductivity

Credit: AlexanderAlUS/Wikipedia/CC BY-SA 3.0

Researchers have found a way to trigger the innate, but previously hidden, ability of graphene to act as a superconductor – meaning that it can be made to carry an electrical current with zero resistance. 884 more words


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
