何为量子材料?

 

维基百科上现在已经有正式的定义:

 

量子材料覆盖凝聚态物理之一大宽广领域,以将一大类材料归于其麾下。这类材料具有一定的量子关联特征,或者具有特定的量子序,包括超导电性、磁序/铁性序。那些电子性质呈现“反常”量子效应的材料也当属此类,例如拓扑绝缘体、狄拉克电子系统。那些集体行为呈现量子特征的系统如超冷原子、冷激子、极化子等等体系也可归于此类。毫无疑问,衍生概念是量子材料研究的共同特征。Quantum materials is a broad term in condensed matter physics, to put under the same umbrella, materials that present strong electronic correlations and/or some type of electronic order (superconducting, magnetic order), or materials whose electronic properties are linked to non-generic quantum effects, such as topological insulators, Dirac electron systems such as graphene, as well as systems whose collective properties are governed by genuinely quantum behavior, such as ultra-cold atoms, cold excitons, polaritons, and so forth. A common thread in the study of quantum materials is the concept of emergence.

 

2016年,《Nature Physics》发表了一篇编辑评论文章(editorial):“The rise of quantum materials”(Nature Phys. 12, 105 (2016)),其中明确提出:Emergent phenomena are common in condensed matter. Their study now extends beyond strongly correlated electron systems, giving rise to the broader concept of quantum materials. 随后,Y. Tokura等在2017年于《Nature Physics》上发表热点综述文章:“Emergent functions of quantum materials”(Nature Phys. 13, 1056 (2017)),其中总结了量子材料研究发展历程及所展现的一系列新颖现象,示于图1。

 

凝聚态物理的骨灰级人物菲利普-安德森(Philip Warren Anderson)应该是量子材料的重要推手之一。1980年代的高温超导和庞磁电阻材料、1990年代的重费米子体系、2000年代的多铁性材料、最近的拓扑量子物质等是量子材料的典型代表。由此,若干能源材料如许多热电化合物、光能源关注的关联化合物等也是量子材料不可或缺的研究对象。

 

谢谢各位关注刊物《npj Quantum Materials》,她会是量子材料这一宽广领域的载体,其网站地址是:https://www.nature.com/npjquantmats/. 我们期待各位老师和同学积极投稿和宣传。
