July issue

This month we examine fast ignition for inertial confinement fusion, we report on non-Hermitian topology, and we have a Focus issue on emergent superconductivity.

    An optomechanical cavity comprising a re-entrant cavity and membrane resonators can be tuned in and out of the Casimir regime. At the transition between the two regimes, the mechanical resonators exhibit a change in stiffness—the Casimir spring.

    The Mott insulator ground state is a crucial feature of high-temperature superconductors such as the cuprates. Here, the authors find an exactly solvable model that contains both superconductivity and Mottness.
