Utah Engineers Create Topological Insulators with Large Energy Gap

Utah Engineers Create Topological Insulators with Large Energy Gap

Engineers at the University of Utah have found a new way to produce “topological insulators”, which possess a large energy gap. This study has been led by Feng Liu, a materials science and engineering professor, at the University of Utah. Topological insulators could help develop superfast computers that do not get over heated when performing hi-speed calculations. [More]
