Physicists identified a new state of matter with a structural order that operates by rules more aligned with quantum mechanics than standard thermodynamic theory. In a classical material called artificial spin ice, which in certain phases appears disordered, the material is actually ordered, but in a “topological” form. The Advanced Light Source was used for this research. More>
