Phase Transitions in Astrophysics, from ISM to Planets

Phase Transitions in Astrophysics, from ISM to Planets


7 May — 2 Jun 2017

Phase transitions occur constantly in the interstellar medium and to a large degree define star and planet formation. The transition from atomic to molecular gas sets the initial conditions for star

A universal explanation of tunneling conductance in exotic superconductors

Jongbae Hong and D.S.L. Abergel

We provide a comprehensive explanation of the tunneling conductance measured in scanning tunneling spectroscopy (STS) experiments on high-temperature superconductors. Until now, the size of the superconducting gap in cuprate superconductors has been under vigorous debate.
