Yale Physicists Find Signs of a Time Crystal

Yale physicists find signs of a time crystal

Time crystals, first identified in 2016, are different. Their atoms spin periodically, first in one direction and then in another, as a pulsating force is used to flip them. That’s the “ticking.”

In addition, the ticking in a time crystal is locked at a particular frequency, even when the pulse flips are imperfect.
