Quantum ‘Shock Absorbers’ Allow Perovskite to Exhibit Superfluorescence at Room Temperature

Semiconducting perovskites that exhibit superfluorescence at room temperature do so due to built-in thermal “shock absorbers” which protect dipoles within the material from thermal interference. A new study from North Carolina State University explores the mechanism involved in this macroscopic quantum phase transition and explains how and why materials like perovskites exhibit macroscopic quantum coherence at high temperatures.
