A collaborative project involving LCN Professor, Sir Michael Pepper, along with Dr Maksym Myronov (University of Warwick), Dr Stuart Holmes (Toshiba Research Europe, Cambridge Research Laboratory), Mr Yilmaz Gul and Dr Sanjeev Kumar, has shown that holes (the absence of an electron) can behave as if they had a fractional charge of ¼ and ½ of the normal value which is the same as an electron.
