Physicists shed light on a different kind of chaos

The experimental setup used by the Weld Lab. Credit: Tony Masters Physicists at UC Santa Barbara, the University of Maryland, and the University of Washington have found an answer to the longstanding physics question: How do interparticle interactions affect dynamical localization? “It’s a really old question inherited from condensed matter physics,” said David Weld, an … Read more

In control of chaos to engineer high-entropy ceramics

Assembly line: A different chemical mixture is created in each of the droplets within the “Tubular flow reactor”—under exactly the same boundary conditions. Credit: Empa Nature strives for chaos. That’s a nice, comforting phrase when yet another coffee cup has toppled over the computer keyboard and you imagine you could wish the sugary, milky brew … Read more
