  • However, Phil Anderson's idea that the phenomenology of the cuprates might be related to the known behavior of 1-dimensional antiferromagnets, which has a beautiful formal relationship to the fractional quantum hall ground state discovered by Duncan Haldane and Sriram Shastry, is still very intriguing, especially since the particles carrying fractional quantum numbers in the latter system, which we call spinons, are relativistic.

  • Physicists first observed spinons and holons in 2009 by confining electrons in a quantum wire and detecting how electrons in a nearby metal could tunnel into the quantum wire by splitting into the two quasiparticles.
