Researchers capture elusive particle trios at room temperature

Researchers have found a way to trap and study elusive particle trios called trions at room temperature. 

Previously, trions could be studied only in super-cooled conditions. These trios consist of either two electrons and an electron hole (a space in the electronic structure that an electron could fill, but where there is no electron), or two holes and one electron. They’re bound together only weakly, meaning they fall apart quickly —— not a boon for researchers trying to study them for applications in quantum computing and electronics.
