Story Highlights

Supercomputers used to find new class of materials that exhibit exotic matter state known as the quantum spin Hall effect.

The researchers published their results in the journal Science in December 2014, where they propose a new type of transistor made from these materials.

They calculated state-of-the-art first principles approximation method on the XSEDE computational resources Stampede and Lonestar supercomputers of the Texas Advanced Computing Center.
