Lighting it up: Fast material manipulation through a laser

Researchers from the Physical Chemistry Department of the Fritz Haber Institute and the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg have found out that ultrafast switches in material properties ...

Magnetism meets topology on a superconductor's surface

Electrons in a solid occupy distinct energy bands separated by gaps. Energy band gaps are an electronic "no man's land," an energy range where no electrons are allowed. Now, scientists studying a compound containing iron, ...

Scientists develop invisible anti-counterfeit labels

Researchers from ITMO University and St. Petersburg Academic University developed a new technology for marking authentic goods. Manufacturers will be able to label electronics, drugs, jewelry, and other products with invisible ...

Advance in 'optical tweezers' to boost biomedical research

Much like the Jedis in Star Wars use the Force to control objects from a distance, scientists can use light or optical force to move very small particles. The inventors of this ground-breaking laser technology, known as "optical ...
