Notable Alumni | Andreas Weichselbaum Models Quasiparticles That Could Be Future of Quantum Computing

Theoretical calculations performed by (left to right) Neil Robinson, Robert Konik, Alexei Tsvelik, and Andreas Weichselbaum of Brookhaven Lab's Condensed Matter Physics and Materials Science Department suggest that Majorana fermions exist in the boundaries of magnetic materials with different magnetic phases. Majorana fermions are particle-like excitations that emerge when single electrons fractionalize into two halves, and their unique properties are of interest for quantum applications.
