The fractional quantum Hall effect, thought to be special to two dimensions, may also flourish in three, providing a possible explanation for anomalies observed in certain 3D materials in high magnetic fields.

Researchers develop models that could exhibit a fractional quantum Hall effect in the absence of an external magnetic field.
