Advanced light source provides new look at skyrmions
Skyrmions, subatomic quasiparticles that could play a key role in future spintronic technologies, have been observed for the first time using x-rays. An international collaboration of researchers working ...
Researchers perform first direct measurement of Van der Waals force
Single photon from a quantum emitter? It's a matter of timing...
(Phys.org) —Many systems envisioned for practical quantum information processing require the use of single, indistinguishable photons as carriers of information and logic operators. So researchers in the ...
Researchers find qubits based on trapped ions offer a promising scalable platform for quantum computing
Researchers show neutrinos can deliver not only full-on hits but also 'glancing blows'
In what they call a "weird little corner" of the already weird world of neutrinos, physicists have found evidence that these tiny particles might be involved in a surprising reaction.
