Fractional statistics of anyons in a two-dimensional conductor

By implementing a collision between the elementary excitations of a two-dimensional conductor, LPENS physicists (mesoscopic physics team) have revealed the fractional statistics of anyons, interpolating between fermionic and bosonic statistics. These results could open the way to topological quantum computing based on the exchange of some varieties of anyons.

This work made the front page of the prestigious world scientific journal Science.
