New Spin-Triplet Superconductor Discovered
Spin-triplet superconductors potentially host topological excitations that are of interest for quantum information processing. We report the discovery of spin-triplet superconductivity in UTe2, featuring a transition temperature of 1.6 kelvin and a very large and anisotropic upper critical field exceeding 40 teslas. This superconducting phase stability suggests that UTe2 is
Nematically Enhanced Superconductivity
The electronic nematic phase, wherein electronic degrees of freedom lower the crystal rotational symmetry, has become a central focus of both cuprate and iron-based superconductivity research. Though magnetic spin fluctuations are commonly believed to drive Cooper pairing in both of these families, the common occurrence of a rotational symmetry-breaking nematic
