  • New Spin-Triplet Superconductor Discovered

    Spin-triplet superconductors potentially host topological excitations that are of interest for quantum information processing. We report the discovery of spin-triplet superconductivity in UTe2, featuring a transition temperature of 1.6 kelvin and a very large and anisotropic upper critical field exceeding 40 teslas. This superconducting phase stability suggests that UTe2 is Read More
  • Nematically Enhanced Superconductivity

    The electronic nematic phase, wherein electronic degrees of freedom lower the crystal rotational symmetry, has become a central focus of both cuprate and iron-based superconductivity research. Though magnetic spin fluctuations are commonly believed to drive Cooper pairing in both of these families, the common occurrence of a rotational symmetry-breaking nematic Read More
  • Evidence of Spin-Excitons in SmB6

    The Kondo insulator SmB6 is purported to develop into a robust topological insulator at low temperatures, yet there are several puzzling and unexplained physical properties of the insulating bulk. A collaboration with Jeff Sonier from Simon Frasier University reports muon spin rotation measurements of SmB6 that show thermally-activated behavior, confirming Read More
