Professor Laurens Molenkamp – Materials with a new spin

When Professor Laurens Molenkamp discovered the quantum spin Hall effect, he knew he was onto something big. At the time he thought it was the type of discovery that an active researcher makes every ten years or so, and with his team, he decided to send it into a bigger journal—Science. “What happened next, we did not really foresee,” he says.

Spaldin has found an unusual material that mimics aspects of the way the universe might have been shortly after the Big Bang.
