Study finds physical link to strange electronic behavior

July 31, 2014

barium iron nickel arsenide Inelastic neutron-scattering experiments have revealed the first evidence of physical properties that correspond with a directionally dependent electronic phase in the iron-based, high-temperature superconductor barium iron nickel arsenide. The evidence is presented online this week in Science Express. Full Story
