Quantum many-body problem solved to order 15
The finding is a major one for theoretical physics: Researchers from Irig, Institut Néel, and the Flatiron Institute (US) designed an algorithm that solves the quantum many-body problem to order 15.
The quantum many-body problem describes phenomena at the atomic scale that standard approaches (“mean field approximation”) cannot model. One such example is the fact that cuprates, electrically-conductive materials, become superconducting at temperatures as high as 160 K. The solution, however, is...
Our students are vitally concerned with the environmental impacts of their future careers
At the end of January, you ran a day-long workshop on sustainable electronics for the 40 students in the Nanotech Master’s program. What were you aiming to achieve?
Increasingly, our students want to know what the environmental impacts of their future careers are. Sometimes, the answer is hard for them to hear. We wanted to support them through this awakening with the help of our partners IRT Nanoelec, Leti, Grenoble Ecole de...
