Telescopes show the Milky Way's black hole is ready for a kick

The supermassive black hole in the center of the Milky Way is spinning so quickly it is warping the spacetime surrounding it into a shape that can look like a football, according to a new study using data from NASA's Chandra ...

Hexagonal copper disk lattice unleashes spin wave control

A collaborative group of researchers has potentially developed a means of controlling spin waves by creating a hexagonal pattern of copper disks on a magnetic insulator. The breakthrough is expected to lead to greater efficiency ...

Uncovering the secrets of spin-orbit optical Rabi oscillations

The Rabi oscillation has been proven to be one of the cornerstones of quantum mechanics, triggering substantial investigations in different disciplines including atomic and molecular physics, acoustics, and optics. Various ...

Research team takes neuromorphic computing a step forward

Neuromorphic computers do not calculate using zeros and ones. They instead use physical phenomena to detect patterns in large data streams at blazing fast speed and in an extremely energy-efficient manner.

Physicists find unusual waves in nickel-based magnet

Perturbing electron spins in a magnet usually results in excitations called "spin waves" that ripple through the magnet like waves on a pond that's been struck by a pebble. In a new study, Rice University physicists and their ...

Magnon-based computation could signal computing paradigm shift

Like electronics or photonics, magnonics is an engineering subfield that aims to advance information technologies when it comes to speed, device architecture, and energy consumption. A magnon corresponds to the specific amount ...
