Shedding light on Kondo correlations

Optical absorption experiments probe the optically-induced decay of Kondo correlations


© Nature 474, 628 (2011)

In a recent publication in Nature, scientists from ETH Zürich, LMU Munich (amongst others CeNS and NIM member Professor Jan von Delft), Princeton and Yale Universities have used resonant laser absorption to examine how a quantum dot with Kondo correlations responds an abrupt change in the interactions that give rise to the Kondo correlations in the first place.
