Overview

Fundamental concepts of quantum mechanics have recently begun to yield important applications to other fields of physics, including especially the properties of materials in low dimensions. These discoveries are emerging in many, traditionally unrelated, fields of physics. For example, entanglement has been used to create new understanding of computational physics and topological order. Similarly, unusual particles that were predicted in high-energy physics have been observed in a condensed matter context.
