Turning Copper Metal into Weyl SemimetalJan 18 2018A search for new topological quantum systems is challenging due to the requirement of non-trivial band connectivity that leads to protected surface states of electrons. A progress in this field was primarily due to a realization of band inversion mechanism ... More
The Uniform Electron Gas at Warm Dense Matter ConditionsJan 17 2018We review the uniform electron gas (UEG) at finite temperature and over a broad density range relevant for warm dense matter (WDM) applications. We provide an overview of different simulation techniques, focusing on recent developments in the dielectric ... More
Single crystal growth of Cu4(OH)6BrF and universal behavior in quantum spin liquid candidates synthetic barlowite and herbertsmithiteJan 17 2018Synthetic barlowite, Cu4(OH)6BrF, has emerged as a new quantum spin liquid (QSL) host, containing kagome layers of S=1/2 Cu2+ ions separated by interlayer Cu2+ ions. Similar to synthetic herbertsmithite, ZnCu3(OH)6Cl2, it has been reported that Zn2+ substitution ... More
Evidence of an improper displacive phase transition in Cd$_2$Re$_2$O$_7$ via time-resolved coherent phonon spectroscopyJan 16 2018We have used a combination of ultrafast coherent phonon spectroscopy, ultrafast thermometry, and time-dependent Landau theory to study the inversion symmetry breaking phase transition at $T_c = 200$ K in the strongly spin-orbit coupled correlated metal ...
