Electron's 1-D metallic surface state observed
Osaka, Japan (SPX) Feb 09, 2016
In the one-dimensional (1D), various exotic phenomena are predicted that are totally different from those in the 3D world in which we live. One of the reasons of this is that particles cannot pass each other in 1D. Researchers in Japan and France artificially created such unique 1D nano electronic systems on the surface of a solid, and observed the 1D electronic state (energy and kinetic momentum of electrons) by analyzing photo-emitted electrons from the sample, and verified the electronic struct ... read more
