Non-exponential decay of a giant artificial atom

Δευ, 12/08/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 12 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0605-6

By coupling a superconducting qubit to surface acoustic waves the ‘giant atom’ regime is realized, where an atom is coupled to a field with wavelength orders of magnitude smaller than the atomic size. This leads to non-Markovian qubit dynamics.

The role of basic plasmas studies in the quest for fusion power

Δευ, 05/08/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 05 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0622-5

Efforts to demonstrate the feasibility of fusion power can benefit from studies of fundamental questions in plasma physics carried out in simplified devices.

Low-dimensional dynamics of two coupled biological oscillators

Δευ, 05/08/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 05 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0598-1

Modelling and microscopy of thousands of cells together reveal the coupling through which the cell cycle influences the circadian clock. This coupling may explain why mammalian tissues growing at different rates have shifted circadian rhythms.

Electronic correlations in twisted bilayer graphene near the magic angle

Δευ, 05/08/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 05 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0606-5

Scanning tunnelling microscopy shows that electrons in twisted bilayer graphene are strongly correlated for a wide range of density. In particular, a correlated regime appears near charge neutrality and theory suggests nematic ordering.

Topological chaos in active nematics

Δευ, 05/08/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 05 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0600-y

Braiding by topological defects in an active nematic fluid produces macroscopic chaotic advection, such that the defects themselves act as effective stirring rods. The resultant mixing is revealed to be a result of sliding on a molecular scale.

Large linear-in-temperature resistivity in twisted bilayer graphene

Δευ, 05/08/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 05 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0596-3

Transport measurements on twisted bilayer graphene show that a large linear-in-temperature increase in resistivity exists for many twist angles. This may have implications for the mechanism of superconductivity in this material.

Attosecond screening dynamics mediated by electron localization in transition metals

Δευ, 05/08/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 05 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0602-9

Experiments with attosecond time resolution reveal many-body electron dynamics in transition metals before thermalization sets in. Ultrafast electronic localization on d orbitals is found to dominate the collective dynamic response of the system.

Locked body clocks

Δευ, 05/08/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 05 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0617-2

Synchronization can induce both order and disorder, betraying a multistability that is rife in living systems. Evidence now suggests that the circadian clock synchronizes with the cell cycle, and that this behaviour is common to different species.

A needle in a moiré stack

Nature Physics, Published online: 05 August 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0645-y

Spatially resolved measurements of twisted bilayer graphene reveal more details of the strongly correlated electrons.

Superconducting quantum interference devices can accurately measure temperatures even below 1 mK, but there’s more to them — as Thomas Schurig explains.

Probing dense baryon-rich matter with virtual photons

Nature Physics, Published online: 29 July 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0583-8

Virtual photons emitted from strong-interaction matter created in relativistic heavy-ion collisions decay into electron–positron pairs, which provide information about the system’s properties.

Observation of nodal-line semimetal with ultracold fermions in an optical lattice

Δευ, 29/07/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 29 July 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0564-y

Three-dimensional spin–orbit coupling is synthesized for ultracold fermions trapped in optical Raman lattice. The band structure bearing a nodal-line semimetal character is reconstructed through a series measurement of spin textures.

Field-tunable quantum disordered ground state in the triangular-lattice antiferromagnet NaYbO<sub>2</sub>

Δευ, 29/07/2019 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 29 July 2019; doi:10.1038/s41567-019-0594-5

At zero magnetic field, the triangular-lattice antiferromagnet NaYbO2 shows the absence of long-range magnetic order down to 50 mK, consistent with quantum spin liquid behaviour. An external field renders the system a collinear ordered phase.
