Quantum spin liquids get a new flavor

Understanding quantum spin liquids is considered by many to be one of the grand challenges of physics and has been the focus of intense research for over 30 years. These exotic states of matter do not follow the classical rules of our everyday world. Instead, the laws of quantum mechanics define and control them, and this makes possible new and extraordinary types of behaviour.
