Story Highlights

Researchers used Frontera to explore whether it is possible to generate light-induced superconductivity a pulsed laser.

Light-induced superconductivity is believed to be a promising route to room-temperature superconductors.

They found that d-wave superconductivity can be enhanced by a pulsed laser, but the light-enhanced superconductivity may be of fluctuating nature.

The project applied a recently developed exact diagonalization method which allows precise calculations of up to a trillion matrix elements, but requires large scale high performance computing.
