Electrons slide through the hourglass on surface of bizarre material

A team of researchers has predicted the existence of a new state of matter in which current flows only through a set of surface channels that resemble an hourglass. These channels are created through the action of a newly theorized particle, dubbed the 'hourglass fermion', which arises due to a special property of the material.
