Interdisciplinary team demonstrates superconducting qualities of topological insulators Topological insulators (TIs) are an exciting new type of material that on their surface carry electric current, but within their bulk, act as insulators. Since the discovery of TIs about a decade ago, their unique characteristics (which point to potential applications in quantum computing) have been explored…

Topological insulator materials: From quantum mechanics to computers

By Eileen De Guire / May 20, 2012

Electrons on the surface of a topological insulator can flow with little resistance. Their spin and direction are intimately related; the direction of the electron determines its spin and in turn is determined by it. Credit: LBNL. Last week several press releases came out about new work on topological insulators. A topological insulator—more accurately, a…
