Princeton scientists discover chiral crystals exhibiting exotic quantum effects .
Princeton physicist Zahid Hasan led an international team of physicists who have discovered a form of chiral crystals — crystals with an asymmetry like biological “handedness” — that host slow light-like massless electrons. The movement of some groups of electrons in these crystals mimics the behavior of magnetic monopoles. These strange properties may be utilized for next-generation quantum, magnetic and optical technologies.
