A joint research by researchers from two different science fields, elementary particle physics and condensed matter physics, predicted a new phenomenon in magnetic materials with dynamical axion field.

Though the feasibility to detect axion by an elementary particle experiment is yet unknown, it is predicted that the new instability may be observed in a condensed matter experiment by adjusting the material.

This result will be published in Physical Review Letters. It is the first publication by a joint research between the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) and the Institute for Solid State Physics (ISSP).
