Physicists have been trying to observe the Kondo cloud quantum phenomenon for many decades. An international research team including a scientist from City University of Hong Kong (CityU) has recently developed a novel device that successfully measures the length of the Kondo cloud and even allows for controlling it. The findings can be regarded as a milestone in condensed matter physics, and may provide insights for understanding multiple impurity systems such as high-temperature superconductors.
Dr. Ivan Valerievich Borzenets, assistant professor at CityU's Department of Physics, collaborated with scientists from Germany, Japan and Korea. Their research findings were published in Nature.To read more, click here.
