International researchers discover novel state with chiral currents at an atomic scale. 

Chiral currents result from cooperative electron movement, distinct from spin in magnetic materials. 

Chirality, essential for understanding DNA, detected through photon-matter interaction. 

Quantum discovery published in Nature enhances knowledge of quantum materials. 

Chiral quantum phases and surface phenomena explored through light-matter interaction. 

Federico Mazzola, a researcher at Ca’ Foscari University, leads the groundbreaking study. 

Discovery may revolutionize electronics with chiral currents replacing electron charge. 

Impacts expected in chiral optoelectronic devices, quantum technologies, and sensors.

Theoretical prediction confirmed using the Italian Elettra synchrotron in a first-of-its-kind study.
