Physicists create exotic electron liquid

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, quantum physics, space travel

The achievement opens a pathway for development of the first practical and efficient devices to generate and detect light at terahertz wavelengths—between and microwaves. Such devices could be used in applications as diverse as communications in outer space, cancer detection, and scanning for concealed weapons.

The research could also enable exploration of the basic physics of matter at infinitesimally small scales and help usher in an era of quantum metamaterials, whose structures are engineered at atomic dimensions.
