Electronic liquid crystal: A key ingredient for solving a long-standing mystery of the high-temperature superconductivity
The phases of matter are characterized by the symmetries inherent to each state. Imagine the freezing from water to ice. This phase transition is accompanied by the crystallization of H2O molecules, forming a periodic structure in a lattice.
Many pure elements and complex compounds become superconducting when their electrical resistance drops to zero below critical temperature, Tc. For more than a century, the race for higher Tc remains one of the most exciting topics in
