Researchers discover new flat electronic bands, paving way for advanced quantum materials

Researchers at Rice University have predicted the existence of flat electronic bands at the Fermi level, which could revolutionize quantum computing and electronics. These bands, created through electron interactions, enhance electron correlations and enable new quantum phases. The study demonstrates a new type of Kondo effect and highlights the potential for these flat bands to realize novel quantum states, such as anyons and Weyl fermions. This discovery paves the way for advanced quantum materials and applications in qubits and spintronics.
