New publication on Arxiv by Liuke Lyu and William Witczak-Krempa

The PhD student Liuke Lyu and Professor William Witczak-Krempa recently published a preprint of their new article titled “Drude-like Thermal Hall Resistivity in the Cuprates“. The article uncovers a new property of heat transport in many cuprates (copper oxides), which are important due to the presence of high-temperature superconductivity in their phase diagram. Surprisingly, when a magnetic field is applied the thermal Hall resistivity behaves the same way as for non-interacting electrons.
