    OK, we had Hall-effect equivalent for photons. And now there is Hall effect for phonons!

    That's quite surprising (haven't read the PRL yet) ! :eek:

    In fact, I wasn't even aware of the Hall Effect on photons, and is something I'd better read as well. :redface:

    Speaking of the Hall Effect, if someone can give me a nice intuitive picture for the Spin Hall Effect, that would be nice too. I've never gotten to completely understanding the basis of the intrinsic SHE.
