Physicists find new order in quantum electronic material
Two Rutgers physics professors have proposed an explanation for a new type of order, or symmetry, in an exotic material made with uranium – a theory that may one day lead to enhanced computer displays and data storage systems ...
The first controllable atom superconducting quantum interference device
(Phys.org)—PFC supported scientists at JQI have created the first controllable atomic circuit that functions analogously to a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) and allows operators to ...
Interfaces are key in metal oxide superlattices
(Phys.org)—Materials called transition metal oxides have physicists intrigued by their potentially useful properties—from magnetoresistance (the reason a hard drive can write memory) to superconductivity.
Every atom counts in graphene formation
(Phys.org)—Like tiny ships finding port in a storm, carbon atoms dock with the greater island of graphene in a predictable manner. But until recent research by scientists at Rice University, nobody had ...
Superconductor 'flaws' could be key to its abilities
(Phys.org)—Many researchers studying superconductivity strive to create a clean, pure, perfect sample, but a team of physicists found that some flaws might hold the key to a material's unique abilities.
Researchers find possible evidence of Majorana fermions
'Anti-atomic fingerprint': Physicists manipulate anti-hydrogen atoms for the first time (Update)
The ALPHA collaboration at CERN in Geneva has scored another coup on the antimatter front by performing the first-ever spectroscopic measurements of the internal state of the antihydrogen atom. Their results ...
