Study of helium atoms at low temperatures illuminate extreme quantum effects that were earlier predicted.
New materials that exhibit a strong coupling between magnetic and electric effects are of great interest for the development of high-sensitivity detectors and other devices. This paper reports on such a coupling in a specially designed material.
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.
