News & Highlights
A team of scientists has used a sophisticated optical technique based on ultrashort (i.e. 10 fs) laser pulses to directly observe the extremely rapid interaction among electrons in cuprates superconductors. This interaction, which is also called “superconductive glue”,  is of paramount importance for understanding the origin of high temperature superconductivity. The results of this research is an outcome of a fruitful  collaboration between different groups, including CNR-IFN, and it has been recently published on  Nature physics.
