Researchers have discovers that disorder is part of the structural transition of Vanadium Dioxide from an insulator state to a metallic state at extremely small time resolutions. The results of the study provide a new perspective on how to control matter, especially in the field of superconductivity, which could have major implications for nano-technology and optoelectronics.
