Weyl points, first predicted in 1929, observed for the first time

16 julio 2015

Part of a 1929 prediction by physicist Hermann Weyl — of a kind of massless particle that features a singular point in its energy spectrum called the «Weyl point» — has finally been confirmed by direct observation for the first time, says an international team of physicists. The finding could lead to new kinds of high-power single-mode lasers and other optical devices, the team says.img src=»http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/sciencedaily/~4/7tERYp4hkm0″ height=»1″ width=»1″ alt=»»/
