QSEC faculty collaborates with NIST, ANL and ORNL to discover a new topological magnetic state

QSEC member, Professor Nirmal Ghimire of GMU leads a group of materials science experts from Mason, NIST, ANL, and ORNL to discover a quantum phenomenon that has the potential to become a building block of future electronic technology emerges at high temperatures from a mechanism not before realized, the result of which is published on Science Advances, doi:10.1126/sciadv.abe2680.
