Electrons race along the surface of certain unusual crystalline materials, except that sometimes they don’t.
Princeton researchers led by Alejandro Rodriguez (PCCM's Seed 7) have uncovered new rules governing how objects absorb and emit light, fine-tuning scientists’ control over light and boosting research into next-generation solar and optical devices.
Princeton researchers led by Andrew Houck, IRG-3 co-leader, and lead author Alicia Kollár, PCCM postdoctoral fellow, built an electronic array on a microchip. Their research results appeared in Nature (July 2019).
PCCM IRG-1 investigators, Ali Yazdani and B. Andrei Bernevig, report strong electron interactions play a key role in the superconductivity that has been discovered in twisted graphene. Nature (Aug. 2019)
