Higher-order topology found in 2D crystal

Credit: Gil-Ho Lee (POSTECH) Over the last decade, the field of condensed matter physics has experienced a golden age with the discovery of new materials and properties, and related technologies being developed at breakneck speed

Rock ‘n’ control

Göttingen physicists use oscillations of atoms to control a phase transitionCredit: Dr Murat Sivis The goal of "Femtochemistry" is to film and control chemical reactions with short flashes of light. Using consecutive laser pulses,

Crystal wars

Building a harder diamond

Scientists at the University of Tsukuba use computer calculations to propose a new way to rearrange the carbon atoms in a diamond to make it even harder, which may be useful in industrial applications that rely on synthetic cutting diamonds…
