Featured Research: Strange Metals Get Stranger

The strange metal is a poorly understood state of matter found in a variety of quantum materials, notably both Cu- and Fe-based high-temperature superconductors. This phase is believed to be key for the understanding of superconductivity in those materials, which have been observed at record high temperatures. OU Professor Bruno Uchoa coauthored a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences with an experimental group from the University of Illinois. In this work, it is found experimental…
