Nuclear spins control current in plastic LED: Step toward quantum computing, spintronic memory, better displays
University of Utah physicists read the subatomic "spins" in the centers or nuclei of hydrogen isotopes, and used the data to control current that powered light in a cheap, plastic LED – at room temperature ...
Co-flowing liquids can stabilize chaotic 'whipping' in microfluidic jets
Industrial wet spinning processes produce fibers from polymers and other materials by using tiny needles to eject continuous jets of liquid precursors. The electrically charged liquids ejected from the needles ...
Single laser stops molecular tumbling motion instantly
In the quantum world, making the simple atom behave is one thing, but making the more complex molecule behave is another story. Now Northwestern University scientists have figured out an elegant way to stop a molecule from ...
Detecting neutrinos, physicists look into the heart of the Sun
Using one of the most sensitive neutrino detectors on the planet, an international team of physicists including Andrea Pocar, Laura Cadonati and doctoral student Keith Otis at the University of Massachusetts ...
When an exciton acts like a hole
(Phys.org) —When is an electron hole like a quasiparticle (QP)? More specifically, what happens when a single electron hole is doped into a two-dimensional quantum antiferromagnet? Quasiparticle phenomena ...
Do we live in a 2-D hologram? New Fermilab experiment will test the nature of the universe
A unique experiment at the U.S. Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory called the Holometer has started collecting data that will answer some mind-bending questions about our universe ...
Researchers devise several ways to orient nonmagnetic objects in 3D space using magnetic levitation
Researchers find first direct evidence of 'spin symmetry' in atoms
Just as diamonds with perfect symmetry may be unusually brilliant jewels, the quantum world has a symmetrical splendor of high scientific value.
World's coolest molecules
It's official. Yale physicists have chilled the world's coolest molecules.
How Paramecium protozoa claw their way to the top
The ability to swim upwards – towards the sun and food supplies – is vital for many aquatic microorganisms. Exactly how they are able to differentiate between above and below in often murky waters is ...
