Direct observation of ion acceleration from a beam-driven wave in a magnetic fusion experiment

Direct observation of ion acceleration from a beam-driven wave in a magnetic fusion experiment, Published online: 14 January 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0389-0

A major challenge for achieving useful thermonuclear fusion regimes is heating plasma to reactive temperature conditions. It is demonstrated experimentally how energetic ions, generated via neutral beam injection, can be exploited for this process.

Quantum interference in second-harmonic generation from monolayer WSe<sub>2</sub>, Published online: 07 January 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0384-5

Quantum interference between electronic pathways is generally difficult to observe in solid-state systems. Such interference is, however, now characterized in the second-harmonic generation from transition metal dichalcogenides, even at room temperature.

Highly efficient double ionization of mixed alkali dimers by intermolecular Coulombic decay, Published online: 07 January 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0376-5

Using alkali metal dimers attached to helium droplets, a new decay mechanism for intermolecular Coulombic decay is demonstrated. The process leads to previously unresolved double ionization for excitation energies exceeding double ionization energies.

Analogue black-hole horizons, Published online: 17 December 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0367-6

Some gravitational phenomena are difficult or even impossible to observe in real spacetime. Laboratory analogues of black-hole horizons offer new perspectives on field theory effects that might help our understanding of gravitation.

Strain-tunable magnetism at oxide domain walls, Published online: 17 December 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0363-x

Ferromagnetism is observed at ferroelastic domain walls in strontium titanate and its heterostructures with other oxides. Applying strain can reverse the magnetism. This suggests the possibility of device engineering using domain walls.

The Goldstone mode and resonances in the fluid interfacial region, Published online: 10 December 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0361-z

Accurately capturing both microscopic and mesoscopic properties of fluid–gas interfaces is a long-standing challenge. Now, a microscopic theory of correlation functions that can be scaled up to explain mesoscopic surface tension phenomena is put forward.

Collective energy gap of preformed Cooper pairs in disordered superconductors, Published online: 10 December 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0365-8

Experiments show two different energy scales associated with the onset of superconductivity in an amorphous superconductor. This validates the theory of Cooper pairs that condense to a superfluid at lower temperature than they form.

Two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy experiments and first-principles many-electron calculations demonstrate the quantum mixing of different exciton states in monolayer MoS2. This reveals the many-body effects and dynamics of exciton formation in 2D materials.
