Weyl semimetal could create high-speed electronic circuits

Weyl semimetal could create high-speed electronic circuits
  Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have discovered a type of Weyl semimetal, a material that opens the way for further study of Weyl fermions, a type of massless elementary particle hypothesised by high-energy particle theory and potentially useful for creating high-speed electronic circuits and quantum computers.

Topological metal may speed computing

Topological metal may speed computing
Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have discovered a topological metal, PtSn4, with an electronic structure that may lead to energy efficient computers with increased processor speeds and data storage. The electrons in topological quantum materials can travel close to speed of light thanks to unique property called Dirac dispersion. Up until now, only isolated points, called Dirac points, with relatively small numbers of conduction electrons, were known to exist in such materials.
