Chaotic 'spin vortices' could lead to new computer memories

(Phys.org)—In science, just like in life, sometimes creating the most effective organization depends on being able to handle just a bit of chaos first.

A rock is a clock: Physicist uses matter to tell time

What is the simplest, most fundamental clock? Physicists have shown that a single atom is sufficient to measure time using its high-frequency matter wave. Conversely, the frequency of matter can be used to define its mass. The feat is a fundamental demonstration of wave-particle duality central to quantum mechanics.
