redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online While experts had previously only confirmed the existence of two states of magnetism, experts from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) report that they have been able to experimentally demonstrate the existence of a third kind. The MIT researchers have dubbed the new state a quantum spin liquid (QSL), and they describe their findings in this week's edition of the journal Nature. It joins ferromagnetism (the simple form...

While some theoretical physicists make predictions about astrophysics and the behavior of stars and galaxies, others work in the realm of the very small, which includes quantum physics. Such is the case at UC Santa Barbara, where theoretical physicists at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) cover the range of questions in physics. Recently, theoretical physicists at KITP have made important strides in studying a concept in quantum physics called quantum entanglement, in...
