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.

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.
