Free
FLEETLaunch[1]

Until recently it was thought that every material could be classified into one of two types: metals, which conduct electricity, and insulators, which don’t. Recently physicists proposed and then discovered a new type: topological insulators, which are insulating in their interior but conduct along their surfaces or edges, a discovery which was recognised by the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics. The lecture will cover: * Why quantum mechanics makes some materials metals and others insulators * How topology makes some…
