Magnetic fields from neuronal action potentials (APs) pass largely unperturbed through biological tissue, allowing magnetic measurements of AP dynamics to be performed extracellularly or even outside intact organisms. To date, however, magnetic techniques...


Primordial features are one of the most important extensions of the Standard Model of cosmology, providing a wealth of information on the primordial Universe, ranging from discrimination between inflation and alternative scenarios...


Fig. 1(a): Composition of perovskites under consideration
The recent surge in research on metal-halide-perovskite solar cells has led to a seven-fold increase of efficiency, from ~3% in early devices to over 22% in research prototypes. Oft-cited reasons for this increase are: (i) a carrier diffusion length...


Atoms, photons, and other quantum particles are often capricious and finicky by nature; very rarely at a standstill, they often collide with others of their kind. But if such particles can be individually corralled and controlled in large numbers, they may be harnessed as quantum bits, or qubits...


Electrons in a solid can team up to form so-called quasiparticles, which lead to new phenomena. Physicists have now studied previously unidentified quasiparticles in a new class of atomically thin semiconductors...


Scientists propose a new method for encapsulating single cells within tunable microgels which could boost efficacy of cell-based therapies and tissue engineering...


Small animals such as the roundworm C. elegans are excellent models for studying bacterial infection and host response, as well as for genetic and chemical screens. A key methodology is...


Researchers at Harvard University have succeeded in precisely controlling the interactions between photons and silicon-vacancy colour centres in a nanophotonic device for the first time....


By using superconducting materials through which electrons can move without any loss of energy, physicists hope to build quantum devices that would require significantly less power. But there's a problem...
