Newly discovered type of 'strange metal'

Recommended Posts

In research published in the journal Nature, the team found strange metal behaviour in a material in which electrical charge is carried not by electrons, but by more "wave-like" entities called Cooper pairs.

While electrons belong to a class of particles called fermions, Cooper pairs act as bosons, which follow very different rules from fermions.

This is the first time strange metal behavior has been seen in a bosonic system, and researchers are hopeful that the discovery might be helpful in finding an explanation for how strange metals work—something that has eluded scientists for decades.

Thats a strange article.

Cooper pairs have been known about for some time, they are pairs of electrons bonded together and what cause superconductivity. There is no new discovery in that article, it reads like someone who doesnt know about it, wrote about it, and is trying to frame it as a new discovery when it isnt.

MIT News Office posted an update a few days ago detailing an electron / phonon couple

Sounds like something out of Blind Frog Ranch. :huh: They found rare earth material and might mine for it scatter about from a large meteor impact in the area. Now they claim heating up just soil in the area will create metals. Weird alchemy

Stop buying into complete BS. What happens when they do that is a completely natural and explained process. There is nothing "magic" about it.

I'd link to discussions about why that is, but you'll just ignore it anyway so why bother.
