2-D atoms do the twist

Thu, 09/19/2019 - 21:19
Atoms in a crystal vibrate when heated, creating collective excitations. This leads to the propagation of vibrational waves (phonons), which are similar to the ripples seen on the surface of water. In a new study, scientists demonstrated, for the first time, an intrinsically rotating form of motion for the atoms in a crystal.
