July 21, 2015 — Organic molecules allow producing printable electronics and solar cells with extraordinary properties. In spintronics, too, molecules open up the unexpected possibility of controlling the magnetism ... read more

June 22, 2015 — Researchers have revealed a novel magnetic structure named the "Devil's staircase" in cobalt oxides using soft X-rays. This is an important result since the researchers succeeded in ... read more

June 22, 2015 — Scientists have successfully measured the spin Hall effect in a superconductor for the first time. The spin Hall effect is responsible for the conversion of magnetic flow to current flow and has not ... read more

June 22, 2015 — Scientists built nanoscale mirrors to trap light around atoms inside of diamond crystals. The mirrored cavities allow light to bounce back and forth up to 10,000 times, enhancing the normally weak ... read more

June 22, 2015 — A basic characteristic of elementary particles, spin is used daily in certain imaging techniques; yet, previous studies of the mechanics behind proton spin did not add up. An experiment at the ... read more

June 8, 2015 — Researchers have uncovered physical mechanisms allowing the manipulation of magnetic information with heat. These new phenomena rely on the transport of thermal energy, in contrast to the ... read more

June 3, 2015 — Magnetic resonance tomography images are an important diagnostic tool. The achievable contrast depends on how well the nuclear spins that form the basis of the imaging signals can be controlled. ... read more

June 2, 2015 — From flocks of starlings to schools of fish, nature is full of intricate dynamics that emerge from the collective behavior of individuals. In recent years, interest has grown in trying to capture ... read more

May 29, 2015 — Engineers have created tiny acoustic vortices and used them to grip and spin microscopic particles suspended in ... read more

Astrophysicist Provides New Fluid Dynamics Insights

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 — 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 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 — Electronics is based on the manipulation of electrons and other charge carriers, but in addition to charge, electrons possess a property known as spin. When spin is manipulated with magnetic and ... 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

Artificial Spin Ice: A New Playground to Better Understand Magnetism

Apr. 27, 2015 — For the first time, nanomagnet islands or arrays were arranged into an exotic structure (called “shakti”) that does not directly relate to any known natural material. The “shakti” artificial ... read more

Heat Makes Electrons' Spin in Magnetic Superconductors

Apr. 24, 2015 — Physicists have shown how heat can be exploited for controlling magnetic properties of matter. The finding helps in the development of more efficient mass ... read more

Apr. 23, 2015 — Scientists have created an electronic device so accurate that it can detect the charge of a single electron in less than one microsecond. It has been dubbed the 'gate sensor' and could be ... read more

Apr. 22, 2015 — As computers continue to shrink -- moving from desks and laps to hands and wrists -- memory has to become smaller, stable and more energy conscious. A group of researchers is trying to do just that ... read more
