Chiro-optical force observed at the nanoscale

A research group at the Institute for Molecular Science has successfully observed the left and right handedness of material structures at the nanoscale, by illuminating chiral gold nanostructures with circularly polarized ...

Ultrafast quantum simulation of large-scale quantum entanglement

A research group led by Professor Kenji Ohmori at the Institute for Molecular Science, National Institutes of Natural Sciences are using an artificial crystal of 30,000 atoms aligned in a cubic array with a spacing of 0.5 ...

New cosmological constraints on the nature of dark matter

New research, published in The Astrophysical Journal, has revealed the distribution of dark matter in never-before-seen detail, down to a scale of 30,000 light-years. The observed distribution fluctuations provide better ...

Study reveals structures of six states of a rotary sodium ion pump

Six structures exhibited by the rotating sodium ion pump were reconstructed in 3D using cryo-electron microscopy. This analysis revealed that the rotor exhibits non-uniform rotation behavior due to partial structural interference ...

Astronomers unbury radio emissions from CIZA galaxy cluster

Astronomers have used a newly upgraded world-leading radio telescope to unbury the radio emissions from a galaxy cluster known as CIZA1359. The signal has until now been buried in noise from a nearby foreground object.
