Yb2Ti2O7: a quantum material under pressure

New quantum states of matter often escape experimental observations. Our recent study combined neutron diffraction and muon spin relaxation measurements (μSR) to show why in the mineral Yb2Ti2O7: (...)

A Party Trick: How to Lift a Car With Two Phonebooks

Take two phonebooks, interleave their pages and separate them by pulling on their spines. The accumulated friction between the pages is so high that even lifting a car by the interleaved (...)
