Electrons bunch up in quantum light

Nature Physics, Published online: 15 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02473-5When photons impinge on a material, free electrons can be created by the photoelectric effect. The emitted electron current usually fluctuates with Poisson statistics, but if squeezed quantum light is applied, the electrons bunch up.

Distinct elastic properties and their origins in glasses and gels

Nature Physics, Published online: 12 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02456-6As amorphous solids, glasses and gels are similar, but the origins of their different elastic properties are unclear. Simulations now suggest differing free-energy-minimizing pathways: structural ordering for glasses and interface reduction for gels.

Search for rule-breaking electrons

Nature Physics, Published online: 11 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02448-6Questioning the validity of axioms can teach us about physics beyond the standard model. A recent search for the violation of charge conservation and the Pauli exclusion principle yields limits on these scenarios.

All-optical seeding of a light-induced phase transition with correlated disorder

Nature Physics, Published online: 11 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02474-4Controlling phase transitions in solids is crucial for many applications. Ultrafast laser pulses have now been shown to enable the energy-efficient generation of structural fluctuations in VO2 by harnessing the correlated disorder in the material.

Nonlinearity-induced topological phase transition characterized by the nonlinear Chern number

Nature Physics, Published online: 11 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02451-xLinear topological systems can be characterized using invariants such as the Chern number. This concept can be extended to the nonlinear regime, giving rise to nonlinearity-induced topological phase transitions.
