Quirky response to magnetism presents quantum physics mystery

The search is on to discover new states of matter, and possibly new ways of encoding, manipulating, and transporting information. One goal is to harness materials' quantum properties for communications that go beyond what's ...

New material acts as an efficient frequency multiplier

Higher frequencies mean faster data transfer and more powerful processors—the formula that has been driving the IT industry for years. Technically, however, it is anything but easy to keep increasing clock rates and radio ...

Randomly selecting leaders could prove to be a remedy for hubris

While history shows us that power tends to corrupt, a team of Swiss and German researchers have recently examined historical examples of large-scale business fraud and misconduct at the highest-levels of government in order ...
