  • Physicists Show Trilayer Metal Oxide’s True StripesExternal link

    07.27.16 A team of researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Argonne National Laboratory describe a process to create a triple-layer metal oxide in a never-before-made single-crystal form; and observed in it an interesting phenomenon called charge striping, which may shed light on the physics behind similar useful electronic properties of metal oxides, such as superconductivity.

  • Fundamental Fission Modeling Finds a FootholdExternal link

    07.26.16 Using the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, a team led by Aurel Bulgac of the University of Washington is spearheading this effort by developing a novel theoretical approach that extends DFT to superfluid nuclei, which exhibit characteristics similar to other strongly interacting systems of many fermions, or particles with half-integer spin such as superconducting materials.
