Quantum breakthrough sheds light on perplexing high-temperature superconductors

A team of researchers made a breakthrough in understanding high-temperature superconductors called cuprates. They used a modified 2D Hubbard model, which includes diagonal electron “hops,” to replicate key properties of these superconductors. This approach helped explain their unique striped pattern formation and superconductivity, offering new insights into why cuprates conduct electricity with minimal resistance at relatively high temperatures. These findings could lead to advances in the field of superconductivity and future technological applications. Learn more here:
