The gate-tunable Josephson diode

Kavli Affiliate: L. P. Kouwenhoven | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: Superconducting diodes are a recently-discovered quantum analogueue of classical diodes. The superconducting diode effect relies on the breaking of both time-reversal and inversion symmetry. As a result, the critical current of a superconductor can become dependent on the direction […]

Imaging gate-induced molecular melting on a graphene field-effect transistor

Kavli Affiliate: Alex Zettl | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: Solid-liquid phase transitions are fundamental physical processes, but atomically-resolved microscopy has yet to capture both the solid and liquid dynamics for such a transition. We have developed a new technique for controlling the melting and freezing of 2D molecular layers […]

Disorder-enhanced nonlinear topological phenomena

Kavli Affiliate: Joel Moore | First 5 Authors: [#item_custom_name[1]], [#item_custom_name[2]], [#item_custom_name[3]], [#item_custom_name[4]], [#item_custom_name[5]] | Summary: The topology of complex networks plays a fundamental role in understanding phenomena from the collective behavior of spins, neural networks, and power grids to the spread of diseases. Topological phenomena have recently been exploited to preserve the response of systems […]
