He had passed, inconscient, full gaze,
The wide-branded irides
And botticellian sprays implied
In their diastasis;

Di dolci desiderii--soffocati nel cuore.

In news:

The glass tiles come in 20 iridized colors, in versatile sizes and color blends.

In science:

The perovskite iridates are isostructural to the cuprate parent compounds and have been drawing increasing attention in recent years.
Bilayer Twisted Hubbard Model for Sr3Ir2O7
The iridates provide the platform for investigation of the low energy electronic structures of the Mott physics.
Bilayer Twisted Hubbard Model for Sr3Ir2O7
The similarity and distinction between the cuprates and perovskite iridates can improve our understanding of the Mott physics on the two dimensional square lattice.
Bilayer Twisted Hubbard Model for Sr3Ir2O7
The perovskite iridates have IrO2 planes which determine the low energy electronic properties, similar to the parent compound of cuprates.
Bilayer Twisted Hubbard Model for Sr3Ir2O7
Pyrochlore iridates: A2 I r2O7 , form a sequence of materials (as the element A is changed) with increasingly strong interactions. A can be taken to be a Lanthanide element or Yttrium.

FIG. 2: A sketch of the calculated phase diagram of pyrochlore iridates with interaction strength (U) on the horizontal axis.
Beyond Band Insulators: Topology of Semi-metals and Interacting Phases
The Weyl semi-metal appears in a regime of intermediate correlations that is believed to be realized in some members of the pyrochlore iridates.

It the De Iride , we found the quid (interrogative pronoun ), what, that is the effect, or the phenomenon, the physics needs to describe, and the propter quid, because of what, which is instead an answer given by the research, on the causes of the phenomenon.
