A phase of matter called Bragg glass, which prior to now had been purely theoretical, has been observed in a laboratory setting. Researchers, including physicist Krishnanand Mallayya of Cornell University, found this strange phase within an alloy containing palladium, terbium, and tellurium (PdxErTe3), as documented in a study published in Nature Physics

Researchers led by Cornell have discovered an unusual phenomenon in a metal-insulating material, providing valuable insights for the design of materials with new properties by way of faster switching between states of matter.
The paper’s co-authors include Kyle Shen, the James A. Weeks Professor of Physical Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences.
