Topological quantum phases cannot be characterized by Ginzburg–Landau type order parameters, and are instead described by non-local topological invariants. Experimental platforms capable of realizing such exotic states now include...
         
The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) has issued a new Report, Advancing Quantum Information Science: National Challenges and Opportunities, which prominently features results from several Harvard Physics research groups.
         
A ℤ2 fractionalized Fermi liquid (FL*) is a novel state of strongly correlated quantum matter. Although it is metallic, it violates Luttinger’s theorem on the volume enclosed by the Fermi surface obeyed by conventional metals; this is possible due to the presence of emergent gauge excitations. In a new Physical Review B editors' suggested article describes a study of the superconducting states...
