Coincidence Helps Expand Cornerstone of Physics
Jülich/Garching, 2 May 2019 – Atomic nuclei and electrons in solids influence each other’s motion – and they do so not only in rare exceptional cases, as previously believed. Scientists from Forschungszentrum Jülich and Technische Universität München (TUM) made this discovery while conducting measurements at Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Zentrum in Garching. The discovery was possible thanks to a student experiment conducted in 2015. The effect could be useful for data processing or for lossless transmission of electric current.
