Figure 1
Whether the non-Fermi-liquid behavior of fermionic systems, developing in the proximity of a quantum critical point, is stable or not toward the formation of Cooper pairs is a challenging open question in the physics of strongly correlated systems...


Figure 2
In a Letter in Nature Materials, Prof. L. Mahadevan and colleagues from Brandeis University, Florida Atlantic University, and Universiteit Leiden, describe directly measuring the sliding forces between two bundled F-actin filaments. They show that these frictional forces are unexpectedly large, scale logarithmically with sliding velocity as in solid-like friction...


Prof. K. K. Ni
Professor Kang-Kuen Ni has been named one of the 2015 Sloan Research Fellows by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. The Fellowships seek to stimulate fundamental research by early-career scientists and scholars of outstanding promise.


Lewis lecture announcement
3D printing enables one to rapidly design and fabricate materials in arbitrary shapes on demand. Prof. Lewis will introduce the fundamental principles that underpin 3D printing techniques...


Figure 1
A single M5-brane probing G, an ADE-type singularity, leads to a system which has G × G global symmetry and can be viewed as "bifundamental" (G, G) matter. For the A N series, this leads to the usual notion of bifundamental matter. For the other cases it corresponds to a strongly interacting (1, 0) superconformal system in six dimensions...


Figure 3
Grad student Michael Shulman and postdoc Marc Warner survey the state of condensed matter physics for the past nine years in a recent arXiv article...


Figure 8
Prof. Michael Brenner and colleagues from SEAS and Kavli Institute for Bionano Science and Technology have published an article in the latest issue of Nature Communication which describes their study of the spontaneous assembly of structures made of many kinds of components...


Prof. Eugene Demler has been honoured as a 'Distinguished Scholar' by the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics. This program has been launched by MPQ two years ago "in order to offer outstanding scientists from other research institutes worldwide new cooperation possibilities[...]


Book cover
Energy can be neither created nor destroyed—but it can be wasted. The United States wastes two-thirds of its energy, including 80 percent of the energy used in transportation...
