SLAC Study: Light Can Switch On Topological Materials |

SLAC Study: Light Can Switch On Topological Materials 
Theoretical physicists at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory used computer simulations to show how special light pulses could create robust channels where electricity flows without resistance in an atomically thin semiconductor.
If this approach is confirmed by experiments, it could open the door to a new way of creating and controlling this desirable property in a wider range of materials than is possible today.
The result was published in Nature Communications.
