Bismuth was long thought to be an ordinary metallic crystal, but groundbreaking research by physics professor Arun Bansil and his colleagues predicts it is in fact a highly efficient topological insulator, and it could be the answer to building supercomputers that don't overheat.
Northeastern physicist Gregory Fiete, left, and his doctoral student Michael Vogl have taken the first step in developing the next generation of electronics.

Northeastern University Professor of Mathematics Ivan Losev uses algebra to solve the mechanics of quantum physics and field theory, the results of which can lend answers towards how atoms move and interact with each other. His complex studies in this field have led to being named one of the 2018 fellows of the American Mathematics Society (AMS).
