Physicists proof electronics are not indivisible

Posted on Sunday, August 02 2009 @ 10:00:20 CEST by

A team of physicists from the University of Cambridge and Birmingham have discovered that electronics are not indivisible. The physicists offer proof that in narrow wires electronics can divide into two new particles called spinons and holons.
The electron is a fundamental building block of nature and is indivisible in isolation. However, this doesn't seem to be the case when electrons are brought together. Instead, the like-charged electrons repel each other and need to modify the way they move to avoid getting too close to each other. In ordinary metals this makes little difference to their behavior. However, if the electrons are put in a very narrow wire the effects are exacerbated as they find it much harder to move past each other.

In 1981, physicist Duncan Haldane conjectured that under these circumstances and at the lowest temperatures the electrons' magnetism and charge would separate into two new types of particle called spinons and holons.
