I woke up this morning and I was browsing Facebook and one of my friends from school has posted this up on his wall. I thought it was pretty interesting so I'm sharing it with all of you.
I personally think the coolest part of this is this:
See the whole article here.
Researchers at MIT have discovered a new state of matter with a new kind of magnetism. This new state, called a quantum spin liquid (QSL), could lead to significant advances in data storage. QSLs also exhibit a quantum phenomenon called long-range entanglement, which could lead to new types of communications systems, and more.
Lee also seems to think that QSLs could lead us towards higher-temperature superconductors — i.e. materials that superconduct under relatively normal conditions, rather than -200C.
