High Harmonic spectroscopy unveils the phase transitions of high-temperature superconductors

Superconductors are materials that exhibit the ability to conduct electricity without any resistance. This phenomenon is observed in materials when they are cooled below the so-called superconductor transition temperature, often at very low temperatures (a few degrees above the absolute 0). Among these materials, there are the so-called high-temperature superconductors, which behave as superconductors at temperatures above 77K (the boiling point of liquid nitrogen). These materials are showing to be essential in the development of new electronic and information processing devices as well as optical quantum computers and even for improving the efficiency of electrical transmission lines.

Dynamite Project Kick-Off Meeting

On December the 1st, the kick-off Meeting of the Dynamite project took place at ICFO facilities in Castelldefels, Barcelona. The project is aimed at developing a new family of simulators based on cold atoms focused on gauge theories. The project consortium is composed of six partners and is led by ICFO.
