Certain bacteria swim by rotating a single helical filament, moving forwards and backwards with similar speeds. The discovery that the torque is not equal in both directions links them to multifilament species with opposite filament handedness.


Black hole horizons have been shown to have characteristic entropies and temperatures. A new investigation shows similarities between the entropy of a black hole and a metallic state of high-temperature superconductors.


Exploiting the light-like properties of carriers in graphene could allow extreme non-classical forms of electronic transport to be realized. In this vein, finding ways to confine and direct electronic wavesthrough nanoscale...


The modeling of the electronic structure is the key to understanding layered transition-metal dichalcogenides heterostructures. In a new, editors-recommended paper in Physical Review B, Prof. Efthimios Kaxiras and...
