Here are some of the craziest newly discovered states of matter that physicists have discovered.
Physicists Aim to Classify All Possible Phases of Matter
“In the last three decades, condensed matter physicists have discovered a wonderland of exotic new phases of matter: emergent, collective states of interacting particles that are nothing like the solids, liquids and gases of common experience.”
Scientists Discover a Strange New Phase of Matter Called ‘Time Crystals’
“New research has confirmed the existence of a bizarre phase of matter once thought to be impossible — a quantum alignment known as a “time crystal.” The discovery may one day have important implications for quantum computers.”
The Mystery of the Universe’s Missing ‘Normal’ Matter Has Begun to Unravel
“There are the longstanding challenges with pinpointing dark energy and dark matter, two invisible components that together make up more than 95 percent of the cosmos. But there is also the lesser-known problem of missing baryon particles.”
