AI can reliably spot molecules on exoplanets, and might one day even discover new laws of physics

Do you know what the Earth's atmosphere is made of? You'd probably remember it's oxygen, and maybe nitrogen. And with a little help from Google you can easily reach a more precise answer: 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen and 1% Argon ...

Magnons vs electrons: A new spin on computer processing

In 1965, Gordon Moore of Intel predicted that microprocessors would double in speed and capacity every couple of years. This prediction, now known as "Moore's Law," has with some modification in 1975 been reliably prophetic ...

Three-body interactions bring egoists into the collective comfort zone—even penguins

A research team from Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf (HHU) has worked together with TU Darmstadt and an MPI based in Garching to examine the group dynamics of communicating active particles. These particles are consistently ...

A new topological magnet with colossal angular magnetoresistance

While electrons are well known to carry both charge and spin, only the electric charge portion is used as an information carrier in modern electronic devices. However, the limits of modern electronics and the impending end ...

Scientists reveal linear law between surface charge density and reaction current in photoelectrocatalysis

Surface charges play an important role in the catalytic reaction in photoelectrochemistry. However, the spatial heterogeneities of charge transfer sites and catalytic sites at the electrode/electrolyte interface obscures ...
