Environment turns molecule into a switch

It looks like a cross with four arms of equal length that have a central atom at their intersection. All atoms are arranged in one plane so that the molecule is absolutely planar – at least in the normal state.

Physicists study magnetic impurities in topological insulators

A group of physicists from MIPT and the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences are now one step closer to finding applications for topological insulators—materials with remarkable electrical ...

Thin film produces new chemistry in 'nanoreactor'

Physicists of the University of Groningen and the FOM Foundation, led by professor Beatriz Noheda, have discovered a new manganese compound that is produced by tension in the crystal structure of terbium manganese oxide. ...
