Singapore Researchers Announce Discovery on ‘Quantum Hall Effect’ that Can Conduct Without Energy Being Lost
(OpenGovAsia) Researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) and scientists from across the world have made a discovery on the “Quantum Hall Effect” (QHE).
Electricity found in a quantum Hall system can be conducted without energy being lost. This means that electronics and technology using quantum mechanics in the future will be more energy-efficient and powerful.
This has only been possible with 2D systems now. SUTD’s researchers and scientists from around the world have pushed the limit and found a method for applying QHE to 3D systems. This is a big step forward as most materials are 3D. The research team was led by Assistant Professor Yang Shengyuan of SUTD.
