New "Hit and Listen" Spectroscopy Technique Maps Energy Levels of Light Particles

These quantum butterflies emerged from simulations performed by the group of CQT's Dimitris Angelakis with scientists at Google. Specifically, they mapped how electron energy levels in a material would split and shift as an applied magnetic field gets stronger. A single, measured butterfly is multiplied here for artistic effect. The colour-coding of the dots comes from experimental data and shows the location of the energy levels. Energy increases in the forward direction and magnetic field increases along the horizontal. Credit: Visual Science/Google.
