    Electron conspiracy in a Japanese lattice pattern: kagome metals baffle science

    The special structure of the atomic lattice of potassium-vanadium-antimony leads to an extraordinary combination of outstanding quantum properties, which have now been demonstrated for the first time and could enable a completely new type of superconductivity. Prof. Ronny Thomale, Würzburg researcher of the Cluster of Excellence ct.qmat, predicted such quantum effects theoretically already ten years ago. The latest experimental results have been published in the journal Nature.
