Achievements

The application of topology methods to the study of unusual states and phases of matter were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2016. Scholars are testing the possibilities of utilising the phenomena, and the ground-breaking papers on the issues, co-authored by MagTop researchers were published in prestigious journals, i.a. in Physical Review Letters (2017) and Nature Physics (2018).

Timo Hyart from MagTop took part in the interpretation of experiments on the so called “magic-angle” graphene, called the physical breakthrough of 2018. It is obtained by twisting two sheets of the material, made of a single layer of atoms. The electric current can flow through the obtained structure with zero resistance. It has magnetic properties which have not been observed before.
