Thin film oxides: From honeycombs to quasicrystals

Breaking translational symmetry while maintaining long range order is one fascinating aspect of quasicrystals. For two-dimensional oxide quasicrystals, researchers at the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the Max Planck Institute Halle, and the University Grenoble-Alpes settle a long-standing question and explain the mechanism by which quasicrystrals are formed using a combination of x-ray diffraction experiments and first-principles energy stability calculations.  This work was published in Nature Communications on December 7th, 2022. more

Cooper pairs with finite momentum rectify supercurrent flow

In a paper published in Nature Physics, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Halle show that a lateral Josephson junction made from a type-II Dirac semimetal Nickel di-telluride (NiTe2) and superconducting Niobium (Nb) electrodes exhibits a large nonreciprocal critical current such that a non-dissipative supercurrent flows in the "forward" direction but a normal dissipative current flows in the "backward" direction. more
