Ribosomes, the protein factories of the cell, belong to the biggest and most sophisticated complexes and are made…

Physicists discover topological behavior of electrons in 3-D magnetic material

Researchers at Princeton explored electrons in a magnetic material at room temperature and discovered that they engage in collective quantum behaviors called Weyl loops.Top: Photoemission spectroscopy snapshot of the quantum Weyl loops. Middle: A theoretical calculation related to the system’s response to applied electromagnetic fields. The correspondence between the top and middle images reflects that…
