Exotic conductors from lab and nature
Researchers have demonstrated for the first time the existence of a naturally occurring topological insulator – an exotic class of materials that possesses the unique ability to conduct electricity and the surface, but not on the inside. Previously, topological insulators have been studied and created in labs only, however now a mineral has been found [...]Topological insulator super-material found in nature too is a post from ZME Science.
