Infrared light fills a "gap" in iron-based superconductor research
(Phys.org) —Superconductors are a fascinating group of materials in which electrons can flow with almost zero resistance. They have the potential to revolutionize electronics and power distribution, but ...
Topological light: Living on the edge
(Phys.org) —Topology—the understanding of how things are connected—remains abstract, even with the popular example of doughnuts and coffee cups. This concept, esoteric as it appears, is also neat because ...
Simulation shows colloids can form into non-crystalline state at below freezing temperatures
Silicon oxide memories transcend a hurdle
A Rice University laboratory pioneering memory devices that use cheap, plentiful silicon oxide to store data has pushed them a step further with chips that show the technology's practicality.
16 atomic ions simulate a quantum antiferromagnet
(Phys.org) —Frustration crops up throughout nature when conflicting constraints on a physical system compete with one another. The way nature resolves these conflicts often leads to exotic phases of matter ...
