In the literature, spin liquids are only possible in Mott insulators, however, I'm not entirely sure why the nuclear spin can't create a spin liquid in a band insulator. Is this possible? If so, is ...
When grounded, can an insulative material keep its charge for any measurable length of time? Or, I suppose, if it was a perfect insulator, would it discharge at all? An example might be a charged ...
In this article is discussed at some length positron formation in metallic surfaces. Positrons have work functions that describe how much energy they have to receive in order to be extracted from the ...
