Natural 3D counterpart to graphene discovered

A collaboration of researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has discovered that sodium bismuthate can exist as a form of quantum matter called a three-dimensional topological Dirac semi-metal. This is the first experimental confirmation of 3D Dirac fermions in the interior or bulk of a material, a novel state that was only recently proposed by theorists.
