Science & Tech
A new phase of matter was put forward around 100 years ago, and ever since, researchers have been looking for it. Now, scientists from the University of Colorado Boulder's Soft Materials Research Center (SMRC) have finally made that discovery.
Scientists call the discovery a "ferroelectric nematic" phase of liquid crystal, and the study was published on Wednesday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
