Superfluidity in a Straw

Consider an experiment where one draws liquid through a straw by applying a pressure difference between its ends. This is equivalent to opening up a faucet, and the flow across the straw will depend on its size as well as the nature of the atoms making up the fluid inside it. Next, decrease the temperature to near absolute zero, ...

Electronic Conduction at the Edge

An international team of researchers including Prof. Adrian Del Maestro at the University of Vermont may have uncovered a way to improve the efficiency of proposed future electronics built from the edges of a new class of exotic materials.  In conventional electronic circuitry, electrons move through crystalline wires but their ...

Condensed Matter Theory @ UVM

We have a diverse set of interests spanning many areas of strongly correlated systems with a particular focus on working closely with our experimental colleagues in the Materials Science program to better understand the physical properties of complex materials for energy and technological applications.
