On July 21, 2021, Cao Yuan was the first author He and the corresponding author published a research paper titled: Pauli-limit violation and re-entrant superconductivity in moiré graphene in the top international academic journal Nature.

The study found that magic-angle twisted three-layer graphene exhibits superconductivity, and this superconductivity persists under strong magnetic fields. This finding may lead to Advances in quantum computing.

This is the eighth Nature paper of the genius born in 1995, and his fourth Nature paper this year.

Cao Yuan was born in Chengdu in 1996. At the age of 11, he was selected into the extraordinary class of Shenzhen Yaohua Experimental Primary School because of his different talents. In less than 3 years, Cao Yuan completed all the courses of the sixth grade of elementary school, the three years of junior high school, and the three years of high school.

In 2010, 14-year-old Cao Yuan was admitted to the Junior Class of the University of Science and Technology of China with a score of 669 in the college entrance examination and was selected into the “Yan Jici Physics Elite Class”. In 2014, Cao Yuan went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to study for a PhD. After graduating from his doctorate in 2020, Cao Yuan continued to engage in postdoctoral research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

On March 5, 2018, Cao Yuan, who was only 22 years old, as the first author and co-corresponding author, published two articles in the same period in the top international academic journal Nature. En heavy paper. Immediately after the article was published, it caused great repercussions in the entire academic community. Some reports claimed that it “solved a problem that has plagued the world for 107 years in one fell swoop.”

We all know the phenomenon of superconductivity, but superconductivity must be achieved at a very low temperature. Since 1911, the Dutch physicist Kamelin Onnes discovered that Since the phenomenon of superconductivity, countless scientists have hoped to develop superconducting materials at room temperature, but they all ended in failure.

and Cao Yuan’s two Nature papers as the first author discovered a way to make graphene superconducting: when two layers of parallel graphene are stacked at a subtle angle of about 1.1° (named Magic angle), it will produce the magical superconducting effect of transmitting electrons with zero resistance.

This heavy discovery made Cao Yuan the youngest Chinese scholar to publish a paper in Nature as the first author. He was born in 1996 at the time The age of 22 also made him the top of the top ten scientific figures in Nature in 2018. This is the youngest person in the 149-year history of the publication of Nature.

Cao Yuan’s paper: 8 Nature + 1 Science
