12 January 2021 - Dr. Li's collaborative work published in PNAS.

  • We perform highly localized spectroscopic measurements (EELS) to reveal a number of key differences between the superconducting cuprates and nickelates, particularly with regard to the hybridization between the O and metal (Cu or Ni) orbitals.

4 January 2021 - Dr. Li's collaborative work published in Nature Physics.

  • We find that the upper critical field of the infinite-layer nickelate superconductor Nd0.775Sr0.225NiO2 is surprisingly isotropic at low temperatures despite the layered crystal structure. In a magnetic field, the superconductivity is strongly Pauli-limited, such that the paramagnetic effect dominates over orbital de-pairing.

15 December 2020 - Our paper published in Physical Review Materials.

  • The phase diagram of an additional family of nickelate superconductors has been discovered, which marks the first step towards establishing a more generic superconducting phase diagram of the nickelates enriched with many exotic properties and intriguing physics.

  • Our lab will officially start on 23 November, 2020. Stay tuned and more to come!

16 November 2020 - We are hiring! Check opportunities here!

  • We are actively recruiting young talents: PhD students and Research Assistants/Associates. Contact the PI for more information!

16 November 2020 - Our Nature paper on superconductivity in a nickelate has been spotlighted by multiple articles.
