Latest Fractional quantum Hall effect Stories
Physicists from the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a theory that describes, in a unified manner, the coexistence of liquid and pinned solid phases of electrons in two dimensions under the influence of a magnetic field.
First, it was the soccer-ball-shaped molecules dubbed buckyballs.
Neutral atomsâ€”having no net electric chargeâ€”usually donâ€™t act very dramatically around a magnetic field. But by â€œdressing them upâ€ with light, researchers at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI),
- Stoppage; cessation (of labor).
- A standing still or idling (of mills, factories, etc.).
