Physics: Scientists Accidentally Discover Completely New Kind of Quantum Material Whose Electrons Act Like Rays of Light
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, science
The breakthrough could lead to the creation of a semimetal with the potential to revolutionize energy transmission technology. Researchers from the Rice Center for Quantum Materials in Houston, Texas, and the Vienna University of Technology in Austria, recently created a theoretical model they hoped would help them better understand high-temperature superconductivity, according to a Rice University press release. To their surprise, the model revealed the potential to create a never-before-seen semimetal in an completely separate branch of physics: topological quantum materials. read more
