      Abstract: Author(s): Nicolas Delfosse, Philippe Allard Guerin, Jacob Bian, and Robert Raussendorf

      Kondo lattices belong to a new class of materials defying standard concepts of solid-state physics. Scientists investigate the electronic structure of a well-known Kondo lattice and find that the Fermi surface is stable over a wide range above and below its Kondo temperature.Creative Commons

      Cavity polaritons—a mixture of microcavity photons and material excitations—can be used to develop new types of lasers based on Bose-Einstein condensates. A roadmap is proposed for building such lasers using intersubband transitions in semiconductor quantum wells, highlighting realistic design challenges such as the quality factors of resonators.Creative Commons

      The creation of quantum-correlated photon pairs is a necessary step toward realizing quantum simulation and ultimately quantum computing. Using a millimeter-scale silicon-on-insulator chip, scientists successfully separate correlated photon pairs from background pump photons, where the latter are more numerous by a factor exceeding 10 billion.Creative Commons

      Abstract: Author(s): Luca D’Alessio and Marcos Rigol

      The periodic input of energy into systems—driving—can have profound effects. Scientists studying driven interacting quantum systems find that a lattice model displays three different regimes as a function of driving period.Creative Commons

  • Theory of Nematic Fractional Quantum Hall States

    • Authors: Yizhi You; Gil Young Cho, Eduardo Fradkin
      First page: 041050
      Abstract: Author(s): Yizhi You, Gil Young Cho, and Eduardo Fradkin

      Fractional quantum Hall states are topological quantum fluids observed in two-dimensional electron gases in strong magnetic fields. Researchers show that these electron gases can also harbor a quantum phase transition to an electronic nematic state inside the topological state.Creative Commons
