SCRAMscope imaging nematic LevLab

First science from SQCRAMscope!  We have imaged the electron nematic transport in iron-based pnictide high-Tc superconductors. Read about it here.


Gouy-induced interaction

Two papers, here and here, show how Gouy phases modify photon-mediated interactions in multimode cavity QED.  Both chosen for Editors' Suggestion and featured in APS Physicis... Read More

dynamical SOC

We demonstrated dynamical spin-orbit-coupling in a BEC for the first time using an optical cavity.  The resulting state is a spinor-helix polarition condensate.
