Magnetic order in a two-dimensional molecular chessboard

Achieving magnetic order in low-dimensional systems consisting of only one or two dimensions has been a research goal for some time. Researchers now show that magnetic order can be created in a two-dimensional chessboard lattice consisting of organometallic molecules that are only one atomic layer thick.

Let there be light: Controlled creation of quantum emitter arrays

Graphene Flagship research demonstrates large scale, fully integrable arrays of single photon quantum dots in layered materials, which may lead to hybrid on-chip photonics devices for networks and sensing. This method is transforming the way researchers work with transition metal dichalcogenide quantum dots.

'Saddle-shaped' universe could undermine general relativity

Researchers have shown how singularities – which are normally only found at the centre of black holes and hidden from view – could exist in highly curved three-dimensional space.

Magnetic order in a two-dimensional molecular chessboard

Achieving magnetic order in low-dimensional systems consisting of only one or two dimensions has been a research goal for some time. In a new study published in the journal Nature Communications, Uppsala researchers show that magnetic order can be created in a two-dimensional chessboard lattice consisting of organometallic molecules that are only one atomic layer thick.

A fresh math perspective opens new possibilities for computational chemistry

A new mathematical “shortcut” is speeding up molecular absorption calculations by a factor of five, so simulations that used to take 10 to 15 hours to compute can now be done in approximately 2.5 hours.

Two NASA Astronauts Inducted into U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame

Two veteran NASA astronauts, Ellen Ochoa and Michael Foale, joined the ranks of the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame Friday.

Lithium oxide on tokamak walls can improve plasma performance, physicists discover

A coating of lithium oxide on the inside of fusion machines known as tokamaks absorbs as much deuterium as pure lithium does, a team of physicists has discovered.

NASA Brings the International Space Station Experience to Emerald City

NASA is traveling to the Seattle area May 22-25 to highlight and share the accomplishments, potential and opportunities for research onboard the International Space Station (ISS).
