    • Topological Insulator Heterostructures: Searching for Exotic Particles on a Bench Top 

      Samarth, Nitin (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-10-08)
      A triumph of contemporary physics is the highly successful description of the most fundamental constituents of Nature and their excitations. Recent theories of “topological insulators” [1,2] have shown that in the complex ...
    • Vulcanized matter: Its statistics, its physics, and its statistical physics 

      Goldbart, Paul (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-08-24)
      As Goodyear discovered, when he first vulcanized rubber in 1839, a viscous liquid of macromolecules becomes an unusual, utterly random, solid, provided that enough chemical bonds are introduced between the molecules. Perhaps ...
