When it comes to talent, versatility and the power to change the world, which atomic particle is the champ? Read what our four contenders have to say — then you decide.

The electron has fascinated humankind for centuries. Here are some highlights from the annals of science.

Physicists prove a 30-year-old theory — the even-denominator fractional quantum Hall state — and establish bilayer graphene as a promising platform that could lead to quantum computation.

From nanorockets to nanocages, good science can come in tiny packages — all with the aim of solving really big problems.

Looking for better ways to power electronics, topological semimetals may hold the answer.

Across disciplines, exciting stuff happens along the boundaries between things. What makes those realms so rich for research, and how do magnets shed light on them?

Hop on this information train for a step-by-step look at how one physicist uses magnets to understand superconductors, spin liquids and why some materials get frustrated.
