Natalia Drichko’s Lab Publishes Evidence for a New Property of Quantum Matter
A theorized but never-before detected property of quantum matter has now been spotted in the lab, a team led by Associate Research Professor Natalia Drichko reports. The study findings, published online in the journal Science, show that a particular quantum material first synthesized 20 years ago, called k-(BEDT-TTF)2Hg(SCN)2 Br, behaves like a metal but is derived from […]
