To excite a materials quantum quasiparticles in a way that allows us to observe the Higgs amplitude mode is quite challenging, said Tao Hong, an instrument scientist with ORNLs Quantum Condensed Matter Division.
Although the Higgs amplitude mode has been observed in various systems, the Higgs mode would often become unstable and decay, shortening the opportunity to characterize it before losing sight of it, Hong said.
The researchers fine-tuned the experiment until the particles reached the phase located near the desired quantum critical pointthe sweet spot where collective quantum effects spread across wide distances in the material, which creates the best conditions to observe a Higgs amplitude mode without decay.
