By tracking the tiny displacements of a nanoparticle trapped in an optical tweezer, scientists are able to detect the faintest of acoustic waves.
Cloaking devices made of a composite of soft and hard materials can divert elastic vibrational waves around an object as though it wasn’t there.
Theorists propose a recipe for directly measuring the topological order in non-interacting cold atom systems.
Coupling a silicon nitride membrane resonator with a gas of ultracold atoms offers a novel approach to controlling mechanical systems at the quantum level.
New scattering experiments provide evidence for the long-suspected existence of an excited rotational state in carbon-12, related to a state that’s crucial in stellar fusion reactions.
