Breaking down the Wiedemann-Franz law

A study exploring the coupling between heat and particle currents in a gas of strongly interacting atoms highlights the fundamental role of quantum correlations in transport phenomena, breaks the revered Wiedemann-Franz law, and should open up an experimental route to testing novel ideas for thermoelectric devices.

Inspiring the Next Generation of Girls to Pursue STEAM Careers

Girl Up – a global leadership initiative of the United Nations Foundation – partnered with the U.S. State Department, Google, NASA and others to organize the annual Women in Science camp to provide young girls access to education, mentorship opportunities, and leadership training.

NASA Astronaut to Speak with Students, Parents, Teachers at YouthSpark

Students attending Microsoft’s YouthSpark event will have the opportunity to speak with NASA astronauts aboard the International Space Station next week as part of NASA’s Year of Education on Station.

Study finds flaw in emergent gravity

In recent years, some physicists have been investigating the possibility that gravity is not actually a fundamental force, but rather an emergent phenomenon that arises from the collective motion of small bits of information encoded on spacetime surfaces called holographic screens. The theory, called emergent gravity, hinges on the existence of a close connection between gravity and thermodynamics.

For UW physicists, the 2-D form of tungsten ditelluride is full of surprises

Researchers report that the 2-D form of tungsten ditelluride can undergo 'ferroelectric switching.' Materials with ferroelectric properties can have applications in memory storage, capacitors, RFID card technologies and even medical sensors -- and tungsten ditelluride is the first exfoliated 2-D material known to undergo ferroelectric switching.

Scientists solve open theoretical problem on electron interactions

A new discovery explains what happens during the phase transition in Dirac materials, paving the way for engineering advanced electronics that perform significantly faster.
