In everyday life, conductors are materials that conduct electricity. These materials are used to make metallic wires that carry electricity into our homes.  In contrast, insulators, which don’t conduct electricity, surround these wires in our plugs so we don’t get electrocuted plugging in our computers, appliances, and lights. The difference between a conductor and an insulator is often the...

The field of condensed matter physics explores the macroscopic and microscopic properties of matter. Condensed Matter physicists study how matter arises from a large number of interacting atoms and electrons, and what physical properties it has as a result of these interactions.

Traditionally, condensed matter physics is split into "hard" condensed matter physics, which studies quantum...
