Unraveling materials' Berry curvature and Chern numbers from real-time evolution of Bloch states

February 12, 2019
Researchers from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg and UNIST (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology) in Korea used a state-of-the-art quantum dynamical method to calculate the quantum of spin or charge Hall conductivity, by which they successfully classified the intrinsic topological natures of materials. Their work has been published in PNAS. [more]

The force of the vacuum

November 30, 2018
Scientists from the Theory Department have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. [more]

Terahertz laser pulses amplify optical phonons in solids

November 14, 2018
Evidence of the amplification of optical phonons in a solid by intense terahertz laser pulses. These light bursts excite atomic vibrations to very large amplitudes, where their response to the driving electric field becomes nonlinear and conventional description fails to predict their behavior.

Shedding light on Weyl fermions

October 26, 2018
Researchers from the Theory Department have demonstrated that the long-sought magnetic Weyl semi-metallic state can be induced by ultrafast laser pulses in a three-dimensional class of magnetic materials dubbed pyrochlore iridates. [more]
