First identified nuclear fragments with a mass number up to 75 at Radioactive Ion Beam Line in Lanzou

Recently, the projectile fragmentation experiment of 78Kr at 300MeV/u was performed at the Heavy-Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou (HIRFL) at the Institute of Modern Physics.

Topological waves may help in understanding plasma systems

A research team has predicted the presence of 'topologically protected' electromagnetic waves that propagate on the surface of plasmas, which may help in designing new plasma systems like fusion reactors.

Making quantum 'waves' in ultrathin materials

A team of researchers has observed unusually long-lived wavelike electrons called 'plasmons' in a new class of electronically conducting material. Plasmons are very important for determining the optical and electronic properties of metals for the development of new sensors and communication devices.

Time travel into the future is totally possible

Believe it or not, time travel is possible.

The Material Revolutionizing the Construction Industry? Wood

Architects and engineers are working on ways to swap steel and glass for strong, sustainable wood-based materials.

Atomically thin magnets for next generation spin and quantum electronics

As our smartphones, laptops, and computers get smaller and faster, so do the transistors inside them that control the flow of electricity and store information. But traditional transistors can only shrink so much. Now, researchers at Stevens Institute of Technology have developed a new atomically thin magnetic semiconductor that will allow the development of new transistors that work in a completely different way; they not only can harness an electron's charge but also the power of its spin, providing an alternative path to creating ever smaller and faster electronics.

Atomically thin magnets for next generation spin and quantum electronics

In 2005, Science asked if it was possible to develop a magnetic semiconductor that could work at room temperature. Now, just fifteen years later, researchers have developed those materials in two-dimensional form, solving one of science's most intractable problems.

To Understand the Universe, Scientists Are Studying the Milky Way’s Cosmic Neighbors

The Milky Way and Andromeda rule over a motley collection of a few dozen galaxies.

Room-temperature superionic conduction achieved using pseudorotation of hydride complexes

There is currently a strong demand to replace organic liquid electrolytes used in conventional rechargeable batteries, with solid-state ionic conductors which will enable the batteries to be safer and have higher energy density.

A new technique for the radiative cooling of spin ensembles

Researchers at CEA/CNRS/Université Paris Saclay, University College London and ETH Zurich have recently devised a new method to control the temperature of a spin ensemble by increasing electron spin polarization above its thermal equilibrium value. Their research, featured in Nature Physics, builds on a study they conducted back in 2016.
