Acrobatics for anyons: New test for elusive fundamental particle proposed
Anyons are hypothetical particles that have been postulated to represent a third class of fundamental particles alongside the known bosons and fermions. Physicists from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet in Munich, Germany, ...
Quantum computing with braids in flatland
Exotic anyon quasiparticles trapped in two dimensional sheets can entangle into braided structures that are less susceptible to the disturbances that disrupt individual quasiparticles in quantum computations.
