The physics of black holes appears to be as far removed from the physics of electrons in metals as it can be. Read more

Black holes with ‘dreadlocks’ offer insight into quantum matter





Physicists understand little about quantum matter, which is a building block of future quantum computers. Theorists have now discovered that black holes with ‘dreadlocks’ harbor a similarly exotic order pattern, which makes calculations on quantum matter easier. Publication in Physical Review Letters.
