Cable bacteria: Electric marvels of microbial world

The emergence of multicellularity, requiring complex interactions between different groups of individual cells for metabolic and physiological benefits, is a great success in the history of biology. While multicellularity ...

Finding superconductivity in nickelates

The study of superconductivity is littered with disappointments, dead ends, and serendipitous discoveries, according to Antia Botana, professor of physics at Arizona State University.

Further insights into the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein glycan shield

An unprecedented wealth of information has been gathered on SARS-CoV-2 in a very short period. This information is primarily focused on the cellular entry process and mechanism of antibody recognition where mainly protein-protein ...

Intense laser light modifies the pairing of electrons

The quantum-mechanical exchange interaction between electrons, a consequence of the Pauli exclusion principle, can be specifically modified with intense infrared light fields on time scales of a few femtoseconds, as time-resolved ...

Researchers reveal why nanowires stick to each other

Nanowires, used in sensors, transistors, optoelectronic devices and other systems that require subatomic preciseness, like to stick together. Untangling electrical wires can be a difficult task—imagine trying to separate ...

Simulating matter on the nanoscale with AI

In a paper published today in the scientific journal Science, DeepMind demonstrates how neural networks can be used to describe electron interactions in chemical systems more accurately than existing methods.
