abstract

Many modern materials involve phases with long-range quantum entanglement between the electrons. This is especially so for certain quantum “critical” states: remarkably, these turn out to have a holographic connection to physics near the horizon of a charged black hole. I will describe recent experimental observations on graphene, and on the copper-based high temperature superconductors, and interpret them using theories of quantum criticality.
