Combining two trapping techniques reduces the motion of a levitated bead close to the point where quantum effects should become observable.
Researchers show that a single photon can transfer an excitation from a quantum dot to an ion.
A proposed acoustic version of a material that conducts electricity along its surface could lead to an improved way to hide submarines from sonar.
Researchers from industry, universities, and major labs gathered at the annual APS March meeting held in San Antonio, Texas. Here’s a selection of this year’s presentations.
The discovery of superconductivity in a manganese-based “helical” magnet opens a new path to explore the relationship between superconductivity and magnetism.
A twist on an established imaging method has detected a molecule’s short-lived, excited state, raising the possibility of movies of chemical reactions.
An atom interferometer embedded in an optical cavity requires less power compared to previous techniques and may work with a wider variety of atoms and molecules.
A signal in the cosmic microwave background thought to be evidence of inflation in the early Universe can be explained by interstellar dust.
A mirror made with metamaterials reflects at a selected angle and only responds to radiation of a specific frequency, while being transparent to other radiation.
