Experimental demonstration of slowing down and enhancement of fluctuations in an Abrupt Mott Transition


A team of researchers led by Prof.  Rajesh Kumble Nayak and Prof. Bhavtosh Bansal from the Department of Physical Sciences (DPS) of Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Kolkata, has been able to demostrate experimentally the slowing down and enhancement of fluctuations at an abrupt phase transition (APT) using thermally induced Mott transition.

The research which has been published in Physical Review Letters shows that the strong abrupt transition is controlled by a critical-like singularity in the hysteretic metastable phase. Read more Journal DOI: https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevLett.124.095703
