Harvard coverage of our recently published work. Notable quotes by group members: “We can think of the phonon-mediated interactions between electrons by imagining two people jumping on a trampoline, who don’t propel each other directly but rather via the elastic force of the springs,” Dr. Yaxian Wang from the NarangLab describes the mechanism intuitively. “The ability to [...]
Our work on phonon-mediated hydrodynamic flow in WTe2 was just published in Nature Physics. This work is the result of an intensive collaboration across Harvard (the Yacoby group and NarangLab), MIT, and the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids (Gooth and Felser). Inspired by the considerable interest and mysteries in non-diffusive electron flow, this multidisciplinary effort [...]
