Sanli Faez reports on: Topologically protected photons avoid Anderson localization.

Waves can propagate through a large ensemble of random obstacles by diffusion. This general mechanism allows light (electromagnetic waves) to travel through thick clouds and facilitate electrons (Schrödinger waves) to More info
