Experiment shows that emergent quantum fluid behavior of helium-3 confined to one dimension is observable using special low-temperature NMR techniques.
This MagLab user talks about meeting Leonardo da Vinci, making magnetic soup and the freedom of being a scientist.
Observing growth processes in classical alloys is extremely difficult; scientists overcame this by studying quantum systems.
Scientists discovered how to tune the optical properties of atomically-thin semiconductors, which will aid the design of future microscopic light sensors.
Controlled by electron interactions, the Mott transition is accompanied by a reduction in the volume of the atomic lattice.
Scientists discover that a new titanium compound is four times harder — and can last much longer — than what is currently being used for medical implants.
With a new $10 million federal grant, an interdisciplinary group of researchers will explore the mysteries of the world’s most radioactive elements.
Scientists theorize, and demonstrate, that a tiny shock wave of oxygen is the key to how nanoscale transistors work.
Team opens new path for understanding hidden order.
Just as all matter may exist in the three famous everyday phases — solid, liquid and gas — complex materials may exist in a combination of subtle phases not apparent to the eye. This finding shows that a class of materials, which all contain copper oxide and are known to exhibit a variety of subtle phases, may have even more complexity than thought. And, in fact, some phases are brought about not by changes in temperature but magnetic field.
