Researchers show that chiral oxide catalysts align electron spin

ACS Nano (2022). DOI: 10.1021/acsnano.2c02709″ width=”500″ height=”270″/> Graphical abstract. Credit: ACS Nano (2022). DOI: 10.1021/acsnano.2c02709 Controlling the spin of electrons opens up future scenarios for applications in spin-based electronics (spintronics), for example in data processing. It also presents new opportunities for controlling the selectivity and efficiency of chemical reactions. Researchers recently presented first successes with … Read more

Study identifies mechanism holding electron pairs together in unconventional superconductors

With the spin fluctuations in the centre, the theoretical description becomes most meaningful. Credit: Vienna University of Technology Depending on the perspective one chooses, a theoretical calculation can describe observed physics more or less accurately. Back in 2015, Alessandro Toschi from the Institute of Solid State Physics at TU Wien and his team, within an … Read more

Rocket Lab’s Electron to launch NROL-199 mission

Physicists see electron whirlpools for the first time

Credit: Pixabay/CC0 Public Domain Though they are discrete particles, water molecules flow collectively as liquids, producing streams, waves, whirlpools, and other classic fluid phenomena. Not so with electricity. While an electric current is also a construct of distinct particles—in this case, electrons—the particles are so small that any collective behavior among them is drowned out … Read more
