Philosopher untangles Einstein senility controversy
When it comes to looking at reality from the subatomic perspective of quantum theory, many physicists are nearly as much in the dark as the average person on the street.
Researchers engineer molecular magnets to act as long-lived qubits
Magnetization can surf on the top of a laser-induced sound wave
An effective coupling between magnetism and light can be mediated by sound. This newly discovered phenomenon could be important for recording data on a magnetic device with the help of light. Physical Re ...
How 'frustrated' magnets escape magnetic deadlock at low temperatures
Magnetism in a material arises from how its electrons behave, which is influenced by the material's structure and the way that atoms and magnetic 'spins' of electrons are ordered within it. Frustrated magnets ...
