22/02/2019 Cooling of atoms using an optical frequency comb

Our cold atomic gases research team, N. Šantić, D. Buhin, D. Kovačić, I. Krešić, D. Aumiler and T. Ban published their work in Scientific Reports where the cooling of the rubidium atoms has been studied by an unconventional method based on the use of femtosecond laser, which in the frequency domain acts as an optical frequency comb. This method could enable cooling of atoms with strong transitions in UV spectrum range which cannot be cooled by laser due to shortage of continuous-wave laser light sources in this spectral range.

05/02/2019 Unusual behavior of cuprates explained by heterogeneous charge localization

Our colleague Petar Popčević, in collaboration with scientists from the Physical Department of PMF in Zagreb, Technical University of Vienna, Austria, and the University of Minnesota has published a paper in prestigious journal Science Advances. In this work a phenomenological model of high temperature superconductors based on copper oxides (cuprates) which describes and connects the most important features of these materials is proposed.

25/01/2019 Organic insulators and the Mott-Anderson localization

Our colleagues Matija Čulo, Tomislav Ivek, Silvia Tomić, and Bojana Hamzić have together with collaborators from Zagreb, Japan, USA and Germany published an article about the influence of disorder on magnetotransport properties of organic insulators with Mott-Anderson localization. The article is published in Physical Review B and picked by editor as a highlighted paper.

11/01/2019 Ultrafast transient dynamics of adsorbates on surfaces deciphered: the case of CO on Cu(100)

Our colleague Dino Novko and his collaborators from Spain and Germany have published a paper in prestigious journal Physical Review Letters. Combining many-body perturbation theory and an effective temperature model, they have disentangled the electron- and vibration-driven interaction channels in ultrafast CO motion on metal surfaces.

05/11/2018 Non-Gaussian fluctuations govern disordered Weyl semimetals

Our colleague Ivan Balog and his collaborators from Université de Lyon in France have published a paper in prestigious journal Physical Review Letters. Their work demonstrates a new theoretical approach to describe the disorder-driven quantum phase transition in Weyl semimetals.
