Scientists discover exotic quantum state at room temperature .
Researchers at Princeton found that a material known as a topological insulator, made from the elements bismuth and bromine, exhibit specialized quantum behaviors normally seen only under extreme experimental conditions of high pressures and temperatures near absolute zero. The finding opens up a new range of possibilities for the development of efficient quantum technologies, such as spin-based, high-energy-efficiency electronics.
Princeton will name campus arch for Kentaro Ikeda ‘44, the University’s sole Japanese student during World War II .
The archway in Lockhart Hall will be called Ikeda Arch effective Oct. 4. The naming is intended to memorialize Ikeda’s experience at Princeton and recognize his inspiring persistence during extremely challenging circumstances.
