Warping in topological insulators

Topological insulators are promising to develop into a material for lossless electricity and information transport. Now, researchers investigated for the first time whether the direction of motion of electrons in topological insulators affects their behavior.

Shaking the topological cocktail of success

Take ultracold potassium atoms, place a honeycomb lattice of laser beams on top of them and shake everything in a circular motion: this recipe enabled ETH researchers to implement an idea for a new class of materials first proposed in 1988 in their laboratory.
