Researchers report experimental findings on spin splitting behavior of antiferromagnets

2024-02-15

Antiferromagnetic materials, characterized by opposing magnetic alignments of neighboring spins, exhibit unique electronic structures that significantly differ from their ferromagnetic counterparts. Conventional antiferromagnets exhibit no splitting of electronic spin in their energy bands because of the symmetry of magnetic elements.

Scientists successfully demonstrate path-independent anyon braiding on modular superconducting quantum processor
