Researchers observe excitonic Bloch-Siegert shift in quantum dots

A research group led by Prof. Wu Kaifeng and Zhu Jingyi from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences recently reported the observation of an excitonic Bloch-Siegert shift in CsPbI3 perovskite ...

Potential energy surfaces of water mapped for the first time

Water is certainly the best-known liquid in the world. It plays a crucial role in all biological and many chemical processes. The water molecules themselves hardly hold any secrets. In school we learn that water consists ...

New advances in protein-folding process thermodynamics

In biophysics, the kinetic states of molecules play a determining role in the metabolic and physiological processes in which they take part. Now, a paper published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences ...

Towards quantum simulation of false vacuum decay

Phase transitions are everywhere, ranging from water boiling to snowflakes melting, and from magnetic transitions in solids to cosmological phase transitions in the early universe. Particularly intriguing are quantum phase ...
