Preprint from Ando group recommended in the Journal Club for Condensed Matter Physics
The preprint entitled “Induced superconducting correlations in the quantum anomalous hall insulator” by Anjana Uday et al. was recommended for discussion in the Journal Club for Condensed Matter Physics and commented by Anton Akhmerov (Kavli Institute of Nanoscience, Delft University of Technology).
The Jounal Club for Condensed Matter Physics identifies four to five outstanding papers in condensed matter physics every month. About 20 correspondents have been chosen who are active practitioners of science and who have a deep interest in the development of the subject. These correspondents are asked to identify outstanding developments that they come across in the publications over the internet or in the various regular scientific Journals which are also available as non-commercial scientific archives on the Internet. A correspondent is also requested to provide between half page to a page commentary on the paper selected and why he/she finds it particularly interesting.
The preprint from the Ando group was chosen by Anton Akhmerov and included in his commentary published on July 31 [download commentary pdf]. The preprint “Induced superconducting correlations in the quantum anomalous Hall insulator” is a collaboration between the Ando group, ML4Q associated member Kristof Moors from PGI-9 at Forschungszentrum Jülich as well as the Universities of Leuven and Basel.
The Journal Club for Condensed Matter Physics is an outgrowth of the Journal Club set up at Bell Laboratories by Conyers Herring in the late 1940’s, who ran it till he left for Stanford in the mid 1970’s. The Bell lab Journal club is famous for the impetus it provided to young scientists at Bell labs. The institution worked so well because of the high standard of selection of papers set up by Herring and the availability of a large set of dedicated and interested participants whose expertise covered almost every exciting area of condensed matter physics at any time. It is felt that using the internet, and with the help of well chosen participants, the advantages of identifying exceptional scientific papers can be shared by the whole condensed matter physics community.
