Devil in the defect detail of quantum emissions unravelled

Systems which can emit a stream of single photons, referred to as quantum light sources, are critical hardware components for emerging technologies such as quantum computing, the quantum internet, and quantum communications.

Creating perfect edges in 2-D-materials

Ultrathin materials such as graphene promise a revolution in nanoscience and technology. Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have published a study in Nature Communications in which they present a method ...

A new thermometer for studying our past climate

The study of past climates—palaeoclimatology—involves the interrogation of physical, chemical and biological information stored in natural archives, such as ice cores and ocean sediments.

Simulations reveal how saltwater behaves in Earth's mantle

Scientists estimate that the Earth's mantle holds as much water as all the oceans on the planet, but understanding how this water behaves is difficult. Water in the mantle exists under high pressure and at elevated temperatures, ...
