Hidden magnetism appears under hidden symmetry

Sometimes a good theory just needs to right materials to make it work. That's the case with recent findings by UT's physicists and their colleagues, who designed a two-dimensional magnetic system that points to the possibility ...

Unzipping graphene nanotubes into nanoribbons

In a new study published in EPJ B, Basant Lal Sharma from the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur provides a detailed analysis of how the flow of heat and electrons is affected at the interface between an 'armchair' shaped ...

Shedding light on a cyclic molecule with a twist

As suggested by their name, Möbius molecules have a twisted loop structure, a special characteristic with many potential applications. A Japanese research team has revealed the properties of a type of Möbius aromatic molecule ...

Magnetism has the pull to transform our digital lives

Digital memory and security could be transformed according to new research, which has for the first time showed that antiferromagnets can be easily controlled and read by switching the direction of ordinary electrical currents ...

Solution to the hyperfine puzzle in reach

Last year, physicists at TU Darmstadt cast doubt on our current understanding of the interplay between electrons and atomic nuclei, and are now upping the ante by proposing a solution to this so-called "hyperfine puzzle." ...

Breakthrough in controlling light transmission

Operation of modern-day technology requires an ever-increasing use of broadband frequency signals. This, in turn, has grown the demand for reliable, efficient methods of signal transmission that prevent interference and are ...
