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.

An international research team from Germany, USA, China and Ukraine performed comprehensive spectroscopic and thermodynamic measurements of the new quasi-1D magnet, YbAlO3. Their study shows, that 4f-based magnets can provide an excellent realization of different aspects of quasi-1D quantum physics, such as quantum criticality and a Tomonaga-Luttinger liquid state.
