A colossal breakthrough for topological spintronics

As of not long ago, the search for appropriate spin Hall materials for cutting-edge SOT-MRAM devices has been looked with difficulty: First, overwhelming metals,...
The planet Saturn (left) and a nano-scale Saturn-type molecule (right). Evidence for the formation of such complexes is scarce, but understanding their interactions could prove very valuable.

Nano Saturn: Demonstrating the formation of nanosized molecular complexes resembling Saturn

Saturn, the second biggest planet in our solar system, has characteristic rings that are held in orbit by gravitational forces. These days, nanoscale molecular...
Volcanic ash under the microscope comprises thousands of tiny particles with complex shapes

AI to help understanding volcanic eruption from tiny ash

Volcanic eruptions come in a wide range of structures, from the unstable emissions of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull in 2010, which upset European air travel for...
Schematic of coherent control of optical phonons Coherent optical phonons are coherently controlled by a pair of ultrashort optical pulses. |g> and |e> indicate the electronic ground and excited states and |0> and |1> indicate zero- and one-phonon state, respectively.

Control of quantum state of optical phonon in diamond induced by ultrashort light pulses

At the point when to a great degree short optical pulse enters a solid, the particles in its lattice begin vibrating. Such vibrations of...
CO2 reduction using a photocatalyst combining carbon nitride and an iron complex

New way to reduce CO2 to CO1 with common elements and sunlight

Scientists at the Tokyo Institute of Technology in collaboration with Université PARIS DIDEROT and CRNS have discovered a new method to reduce CO2 to CO1. They...
A wet-dry scenario in a prebiotic hot spring or tidal pool. A) shows the pool with the five kinds of alpha hydroxy acids used in this study. B) shows the drying pool where a "library" of polyesters, depicted as the inset high-resolution mass spectra) forms at the drying edges. This simple formation of polyesters could have played a role in scaffolding the origins of life. ©Kuhan Chandru
