Isotope effect in superconducting n-doped SrTiO3

Isotope effect in superconducting n-doped SrTiO3

Strontium titanate is a material with a unique combination of different properties. In its pristine state it is an insulator with a band gap of 3 eV. In the absence of zero-point fluctuations (ZPF) the material would be ferroelectric at low temperatures, and the material can be made ferroelectric by suppressing the ZPF by substituting…

The word of the academicians – Thierry Giamarchi explains the word « glass »

On the occasion of its 350th birthday, the French Academy of Sciences produced short films entitled « The word of the academicians ». Nineteen academicians explain in three minutes a word of science such as, chaos, climate, innovation, memory, nano, planet, irrational, etc. Thierry Giamarchi, academician, took up the challenge and explains the word « glass » (in French…
