Bose polarons meet their fate at quantum criticality

An electron moving through the crystal lattice of a solid slightly attracts the ions on its path. The electron and the crystal deformations move together a “quasi-particle”, heavier than the bare electron – the so-called polaron. Such quasi-particles form the basis of descriptions of many solids. However, in modern materials, such as the high-temperature superconducting cuprates,...

Since 2016, members of the CUA have spoken to classes at Christo Rey Boston High School, as well as tutored students. Tutoring is primarily in science subjects, but also covers organizational skills. The Christo Rey student body is comprised of nearly all students of color, all from families of limited economic means, and 60% of...
