Abstract: The accuracy of logical operations on quantum bits (qubits) must be improved for quantum computers to surpass classical ones in useful tasks. To that effect, quantum information must be robust to noise that affects the underlying physical system. Rather than suppressing noise, quantum error correction aims...

CM Seminar - The puzzling superconducting order parameter of Sr2RuO4

04 Feb2021

Speaker: Speaker: Aline Ramires (Paul Scherrer Institute)

Time: Feb 4, 2021 :: 10:00AM - 11:00AM

https://ubc.zoom.us/j/64183011430?pwd=U2lFNXEwSmlBRWVBdTR5OG1ZdlVSZz09 Meeting ID: 641 8301 1430 Passcode: 113399

Abstract: Strontium ruthenate has long been thought to host a spin-triplet chiral p-wave superconducting state. However, the singlet-like response observed in recent spin-susceptibility measurements casts serious doubts on this pairing state. Together with the evidence for broken time-reversal symmetry and a jump in the shear modulus c66...
