Splitting the Indivisible

By Charles L. KaneChristopher H. Browne Distinguished Professor of Physics University of Pennsylvania Matter can arrange itself in the most ingenious ways. In addition to the solid, liquid and gas phases that are familiar in classical physics, electronic phases of matter with both useful and exotic properties are made possible by quantum mechanics. In the […]
