• Weyl fermions have no mass and display a number of strange physical properties. They could provide a more efficient transport of particles than electronics, the current particle that modern electronics shoot around circuits.
  • The team of researchers didn't need a giant particle accelerator to discover the Weyl fermion. It was discovered inside a synthetic crystal called tantalum arsenide.
  • Weyl fermions were first theorized in 1929 by mathematician Hermann Weyl as an alternative to Einstein's theory of relativity.
