Strange Quantum Fluids Feel the Strain

Hardy (news)

Strong interactions can cause electronic fluids to shed their electron-like character and exhibit anomalous behavior. Understanding such strange quantum fluids, their transport properties, and the impact of strain, are important for new quantum materials and technologies.

A study from the Department of Physics and CQIQC, led by PhD student Andrew Hardy, jointly with postdoctoral fellow Arijit Haldar and Professor Arun Paramekanti, provides insights into this exotic non-Fermi liquid physics using the paradigmatic “SYK model”.

This work has just been published in the prestigious journal PNAS and is of interest for quantum materials including high temperature superconductors and graphene devices.
