Iron man gives up iron for graphene
The birth of #graphene  man?
http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2015-01/15/bulletproof-material-graphene
Graphene is a fascinating material, consisting of a layer of carbon only one atom thick. As such, it’s not unusual for scientific journals to make it the subject of research articles

Multiterminal Conductance of a Floquet Topological Insulator now in PRL
How does the Hall conductance of a Floquet Topological insulator differ from a conventional quantum Hall system?
http://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.113.266801
We report on simulations of the dc conductance and quantum Hall response of a Floquet topological insulator using Floquet scattering theory. Our results reveal that laser-induced edge states lead to quantum Hall plateaus once imperfect matching with the nonilluminated leads is lessened. The magnitude of the Hall plateaus, however, is not directly related to the number and chirality of all the edge states at a given energy, as usual. Instead, the ...

Haldane model realized at last!

Reporting this week in Nature Jotzu et al. elaborate on a realization of the Haldane model using ultracold fermions.

Is condensed-matter physics becoming more materials-oriented? Or is this just a new wrinkle in an old tradition

Like chemistry, to some extent condensed-matter physics creates its own subject: our inventiveness (or serendipity) with new materials systems prompts new questions.
