Measurement of mechanical stability of force transmission supramolecular linkages

NUS biophysicists have developed a manipulation assay that can quantify the mechanical stability and biochemical regulations of inter-molecular interactions at the single-molecule level.

Skyrmions like it hot: Spin structures are controllable even at high temperatures

A joint research project of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that previously demonstrated the use of new spin structures for future magnetic storage devices has achieved yet another milestone. The international team is working on structures that could serve as magnetic shift registers, so-called racetrack memory devices. This type of storage promises low access times, high information density, and low energy consumption.

How Do Stars Produce and Release Energy?

Stars generate energy through nuclear fusion. Here’s an easy explanation into how the process works.

Astronaut Christina Koch's 328 Days in Space Are Helping Us Better Prepare for a Trip to Mars

After spending nearly a full year in space, scientists will use Koch’s mission to study how microgravity affects women.

Latest Data From New Horizons' Flyby of Arrokoth Reveals Clues to Solar System's Formation

Data from the tiny world known as Arrokoth reveal brand-new insights into how the planets came together.

Study uncovers new electronic state of matter

The discovery shows that when electrons can be made to attract one another, they can form bunches of two, three, four and five electrons that behave like new types of particles.

Study uncovers new electronic state of matter

A research team led by professors from the University of Pittsburgh Department of Physics and Astronomy has announced the discovery of a new electronic state of matter.

Moving precision communication, metrology, quantum applications from lab to chip

Photonic integration has focused on communications applications traditionally fabricated on silicon chips, because these are less expensive and more easily manufactured, and researchers are exploring promising new waveguide platforms that provide these same benefits for applications that operate in the ultraviolet to the infrared spectrum. These platforms enable a broader range of applications, such as spectroscopy for chemical sensing, precision metrology and computation.

Fragile topology: Strange electron flow in future materials

Crystalline materials known as topological insulators conduct surface current perfectly, except when they don't. In two new studies published in the journal Science, researchers explain how these 'fragile' poorly conducting topological states form, and how conductivity can be restored.

Method combination allows deep insights into ultrafast light-induced processes

Researchers are demonstrating for the first time how the energy flow between strongly interacting molecular states can be better described.
