May 13, 2015 — Physicists have built a microscope that is able to see up to 1,000 individual fermionic atoms. The researchers devised a laser-based technique to trap and freeze fermions in place, and image the ... read more

Detection of Spin of Atoms at Room Temperature Theoretically Demonstrated

May 12, 2015 — For the first time, a researcher has theoretically demonstrated that it is possible to detect a single nuclear spin at room temperature, which could pave the way for new approaches to medical ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Magnetic fields easily penetrate matter. Creating a space practically devoid of magnetic fields thus presents a great challenge. An international team of physicists has now developed a shielding that ... read more

May 12, 2015 — Topological insulators are "strange" materials, insulators on the inside and conductors on the surface. They also have properties that make them excellent candidates for the development of ... read more

May 11, 2015 — Researchers have successfully demonstrated pattern recognition using a magnonic holographic memory device, a development that could greatly improve speech and image recognition ... read more

May 11, 2015 — Rydberg atoms, atoms whose outermost electrons are highly excited but not ionized, might be just the thing for processing quantum information. These outsized atoms can be sustained for a long time in ... read more

First Theoretical Proof: Measurement of a Single Nuclear Spin in Biological Samples

May 11, 2015 — Physicists were able to show that the nuclear spins of single molecules can be detected with the help of magnetic particles at room temperature. The researchers describe a novel experimental setup ... read more

May 6, 2015 — Scientists have discovered topologically protected 1-D electron conducting channels at the domain walls of bilayer graphene that should prove useful for ... read more

May 5, 2015 — Quantum computers are in theory capable of simulating the interactions of molecules at a level of detail far beyond the capabilities of even the largest supercomputers today. Such simulations could ... read more

May 5, 2015 — With the aid of extremely short and highly intense pulses of laser light, scientists have made great strides in their efforts to observe and control particle motions outside the confines of atomic ... read more

Defects in Atomically Thin Semiconductor Emit Single Photons

May 4, 2015 — Researchers have shown that defects on an atomically thin semiconductor can produce light-emitting quantum dots. The quantum dots serve as a source of single photons and could be useful for the ... read more

First Quantum Evidence of System-Shrinking Negative Electronic Compressibility in Novel Insulator

Apr. 27, 2015 — Add water to a half-filled cup and the water level rises. This everyday experience reflects a positive material property of the water-cup system. But what if adding more water lowers the water level ... read more

Apr. 30, 2015 — A quantum state predicted by the Russian theoretician Vitaly Efimov 40 years ago has been discovered by physicists in a molecule consisting of three helium atoms. The molecule is of enormous spatial ... read more

Apr. 30, 2015 — Researchers have experimentally identified a pointlike monopole in a quantum field for the first time. The discovery gives scientists insight into the monopole magnet, an elementary particle that ... read more

Apr. 30, 2015 — Soft tissue disorders like tumors are very difficult to recognize using normal X-ray machines, as there is hardly any distinction between healthy tissue and tumors. Researchers have now developed a ... read more
