Observation of orbital wave as elementary excitations in a solid


  A quantum wave of modulation of the shape of the electronic clouds has been for the first time detected in LaMnO3 (Cooperative work with Prof. Tokura’s group, JRCAT). The result was published in Nature (Vol.480, p.180) and the Japan Industrial Journal (March 8).
