Imagine a world in which electricity could flow through the grid without any losses or where all the data in the world could be stored in the cloud without the need for power stations. mehr

Chiral topology is the new frontier in the field of quantum matter. In the recent study, scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden discovered new fermions beyond the concept of the conventional Weyl, Dirac or Majorana fermions in chiral crystals. The new findings promises vast opportunities for future quantum applications. mehr

Once thought rare, strangely behaving substances called "topological materials" are in fact quite common, a finding that bodes well for their potential use in future electronics. An international team of researchers has assembled an online catalogue, based on the periodic table, to make it easy to design new versions of these unusual materials. mehr
