More superconductor-related news: Earlier this summer, researchers made exciting progress on "strange metals", and the level of interest is high. These materials are barely comprehended--""The fact that we call them strange metals should tell you how well we understand them," says study co-author Olivier Parcollet", and the subject is fascinating from both a theoretical perspective--"Strange metals share remarkable properties with black holes, opening exciting new directions for theoretical physics."--as well as a practical one, in regards to furthering the quantum computing evolution. Now, in short order, another interesting breakthrough has been made: an improvement In understanding how to understand strange metals. "In their next studies, the researchers would also like to start looking for strategies and tools that could be used to probe the spin degrees of freedom in unconventional superconductors directly. In fact, most existing methods tend to examine a material's charge degrees of freedom, which considerably limits their generalizability across different materials." The momentum is exciting, and the amount of research on these subject at the moment is impressive. What's most fascinating is that furthering our technological capabilities dangles the promise of deepening our understanding of the basic nature of the laws of physics themselves, as we delve deeper into the mysterious realm of quantum theory. Even the explanations of long-accepted theories, such as the mechanism for the magnetic fields generated by laser plasma, have been recently challenged and toppled by new research.
