Physicists unveil new form of matter—time crystals

Following a blueprint created by UC Berkeley physicist Norman Yao, physicists at the University of Maryland made the first time crystal using a one-dimensional chain of ytterbium ions. Each ion behaves like an electron spin and exhibits long-range interactions indicated by the arrows. Credit: Chris Monroe, University of Maryland Normal crystals, likes diamond, are an…
