In a new paper in Physics Review Letters, physicists in Prof. Mikhail Lukin's group, together with colleagues from Spain and Austria, propose a platform for studying topological effects in quantum optical systems...


Information technologies of the future will likely use electron spin — rather than electron charge — to carry information. But first, scientists need to better understand how to control spin and learn to build the spin equivalent of electronic components, from spin transistors, to spin gates and circuits...

The evolution of the amniotic egg — complete with membrane and shell — was key to vertebrates leaving the oceans and colonizing the land and air...


Particle interactions have a defining role in many properties of materials, but are often difficult to incorporate into a theoretical framework. Although theories that omit these interactions can describe some behaviours, a full understanding of a material can come only from a complete account of the system, including its interactions...


In the quantum world our intuition for the motion of objects is strongly challenged and may sometimes even completely fail...

Quantum computers are experimental devices that offer large speedups on some computational problems. One promising approach to building them involves...


Although high-temperature superconductivity seems like a complicated phenomenon, its basic features are captured by the very simple...
