Harvard scientists have proven the existence of an entirely new state of matter, which could ultimately transform scientific research, and lead to cures for diseases like Alzheimer’s.
The team from the Massachusetts university were able to prove that the substance, called quantum spin liquid, exists. Their discovery came around 50 years after scientists first predicted that the state of matter could exist.
Quantum spin liquid’s particles are spaced apart widely, but remain connected because of its atoms’ magnetic properties.
