Magnetic quantum material broadens platform for probing next-gen information technologies

Neutron scattering revealed spin correlations of iron trichloride. An artist’s depiction interprets the scattering that provides evidence of a spiral spin liquid state. Credit: Jacquelyn DeMink/ORNL Scientists at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory used neutron scattering to determine whether a specific material’s atomic structure could host a novel state of matter called a spiral spin … Read more

Team invents new anticoagulant platform, offering hope for advances for heart surgery, dialysis, other procedures

RNA-DNA nanofibers have been designed to bind and inactivate thrombin and due to their size have a prolonged circulation in bloodstream. This induced anticoagulation process can be reversed by the kill switch mechanism that also results in production of smaller complexes for accelerated renal excretion.
