Scientists Decode Why 'Frustrated Magnets' Are Discontented Using Hall Effect

An experiment revealed an unlikely behavior in a class of magnets called "frustrated magnets," which were studied by researchers at the Princeton University to see if they behaved according to the Hall Effect. The researchers conducted the experiment to find an answer to a long-debated question about the nature of these "discontented" quantum materials.

The Hall Effect shows that an electric current carried by charged particles in a conductor is deflected to one side when magnetic field is applied. According to the research, if the Hall Effect is observed in a non-magnetic material, then it could have a significant impact on computing and electroni...
