Discovery paves way for a new type of quantum computing An international team of scientists led by a Princeton University group recently discovered that on the surface of certain materials collective arrangements of electrons move in ways that mimic the presence of a magnetic field where none is present. The finding represents one of the most exotic macroscopic quantum phenomena in condensed-matter physics: a topological Quantum Spin Hall effect. The research could lead to advances in...

"ËœStriped' material offers more clues to high-temperature superconductivity Scientists studying a material that appeared to lose its ability to carry current with no resistance say new measurements reveal that the material is indeed a superconductor "” but only in two dimensions. Equally surprising, this new form of 2-D superconductivity emerges at a higher temperature than ordinary 3-D superconductivity in other compositions of the same material. The research, conducted in...

Laboratory researchers have posited an explanation for superconductivity that may open the door to the discovery of new, unconventional forms of superconductivity. In a November 20 Nature letter, research led by Tuson Park and Joe D. Thompson both of Condensed Matter and Thermal Physics (MPA-10) describes a new explanation for superconductivity in non-traditional materials"”one that describes a potentially new state of matter in which the superconducting material behaves simultaneously...
