In physics, understanding phases of matter, such as liquids, solids, and gases, is a crucial task, as substances can exist in different states (phases) depending on the conditions. In modern classification of phases, anyons —quasiparticles with fractional charge— are of significant importance and are also being studied for their potential applications in quantum computing. A collaborative research group, including Masazumi Honda (Senior Research Scientist, iTHEMS) and Taiichi Nakanishi (Junior Research Associate, iTHEMS), has discovered a theoretical framework to systematically construct a new type of anyons with restricted motion.
