You can't play checkers with charge ordering
Toronto, Canada (SPX) Mar 23, 2015
CIFAR fellows were among physicists who observed the shape of a strange phenomenon that interferes with high-temperature superconductivity called charge ordering, discovering that it is stripy, not checkered, and settling a long-standing debate in the field. Charge ordering creates instability in some metals at temperatures warmer than about -100 degrees Celsius, causing some electrons to reorganize into new periodical static patterns competing with superconductivity. But scientists wonder if it m ... read more
