A research team led by professors from the University of Pittsburgh Department of Physics and Astronomy has announced the discovery of a new electronic state of matter. PQI members Jeremy Levy, Patrick Irvin, David Pekker, and Roger Mong are coauthors of the paper "Pascal conductance series in ballistic one-dimensional LaAIO3/SrTiO3 channels." The research focuses on measurements in one-dimensional conducting systems where electrons are found to travel without scattering in groups of two or more at a time, rather than individually. The study was published in Science on Feb. 14. Jeremy also breaks down the scientific concepts and guides the readers through their research in the following video.

Dr. Monica Allen (physics, UCSD) is seeking two postdoctoral fellows to lead a new microwave impedance microscopy effort that would image quantum devices at temperatures down to 10 mK. Topics of interest include 2D materials, topological states of matter, and imaging of Majorana modes in devices.Read MoreDeadline: Tuesday, March 31, 2020
