Blog Post Image: A Superconductor-Surrogate Earns Its Stripes

Ultrafast changes in the optical properties of strontium-doped lanthanum nickelate throughout the infrared spectrum expose a rapid dynamics of electronic localization in the nickel-oxide plane, shown at left. This process, illustrated on the right, comprises the first step in the formation of ordered charge patterns or “stripes.” Image credit: Berkeley Lab (Click image to enlarge)
