**A strongly interacting polaritonic quantum dot**

A strongly interacting polaritonic quantum dot, Published online: 19 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0071-6

Cavity polaritons whose matter component is composed of highly excited Rydberg atoms are shown to act as a zero-dimensional quantum dot. Trapping 150 polaritons led to the observation of blockaded photon transport.### Multiscale unfolding of real networks by geometric renormalization

**Multiscale unfolding of real networks by geometric renormalization**

Multiscale unfolding of real networks by geometric renormalization, Published online: 19 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0072-5

Complex networks are not obviously renormalizable, as different length scales coexist. Embedding networks in a geometrical space allows the definition of a renormalization group that can be used to construct smaller-scale replicas of large networks.### Towards anti-causal Green’s function for three-dimensional sub-diffraction focusing

**Towards anti-causal Green’s function for three-dimensional sub-diffraction focusing**

Towards anti-causal Green’s function for three-dimensional sub-diffraction focusing, Published online: 19 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0082-3

A metamaterial-based acoustic sink has been designed to serve the purpose of absorbing the diverging waves and demonstrating three-dimensional sub-diffraction spherical sound wave focusing.### Quantum Landauer erasure with a molecular nanomagnet

**Quantum Landauer erasure with a molecular nanomagnet**

Quantum Landauer erasure with a molecular nanomagnet, Published online: 19 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0070-7

Erasing a bit of information has a fundamental, minimal energy cost that is given by the Landauer limit. The erasure of quantum information from a quantum-spin memory register encoded in a molecular nanomagnet is shown to obey the same principle.### Anomalous Hall effect in ZrTe<sub>5</sub>

**Anomalous Hall effect in ZrTe5**

Anomalous Hall effect in ZrTe<sub>5</sub>, Published online: 19 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0078-z

Magnetotransport measurements show that ZrTe5 exhibits an anomalous Hall effect without magnetic ordering, a signature of Berry curvature introduced by Weyl nodes. This indicates that ZrTe5 may be a Weyl semimetal, even though this was not predicted.### Publisher Correction: Universality of clone dynamics during tissue development

**Electron acceleration by wave turbulence in a magnetized plasma**

Electron acceleration by wave turbulence in a magnetized plasma, Published online: 12 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0059-2

Electrons can be accelerated by astrophysical shocks if they are sufficiently fast to start with. As laboratory laser-produced shock experiments reveal, this can be achieved by lower-hybrid waves generated by a shock-reflected ion instability.### Quantum non-demolition detection of an itinerant microwave photon

**Quantum non-demolition detection of an itinerant microwave photon**

Quantum non-demolition detection of an itinerant microwave photon, Published online: 12 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0066-3

Deterministic entanglement of a superconducting qubit and an itinerant microwave photon followed by high-fidelity qubit readout realizes a quantum non-demolition measurement of a microwave photon.### Attosecond optical-field-enhanced carrier injection into the GaAs conduction band

**Attosecond optical-field-enhanced carrier injection into the GaAs conduction band**

Attosecond optical-field-enhanced carrier injection into the GaAs conduction band, Published online: 12 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0069-0

Significant enhancement of carrier injection into the conduction band is observed for GaAs subjected to intense resonant near-infrared laser pumping. Attosecond-resolved investigation reveals the interplay between the intra- and interband transitions.### Network structure from rich but noisy data

**Network structure from rich but noisy data**

Network structure from rich but noisy data, Published online: 12 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0076-1

A technique allows optimal inference of the structure of a network when the available observed data are rich but noisy, incomplete or otherwise unreliable.### Alfvén wave dissipation in the solar chromosphere

**Alfvén wave dissipation in the solar chromosphere**

Alfvén wave dissipation in the solar chromosphere, Published online: 05 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0058-3

The first observational evidence of plasma heating through the dissipation of Alfvén-wave energy in tenuous regions of solar magnetism provides fresh insight into heating processes in the solar atmosphere, and in other magnetohydrodynamic systems.### Emergence of anisotropic Gilbert damping in ultrathin Fe layers on GaAs(001)

**Emergence of anisotropic Gilbert damping in ultrathin Fe layers on GaAs(001)**

Emergence of anisotropic Gilbert damping in ultrathin Fe layers on GaAs(001), Published online: 05 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0053-8

The Gilbert damping constant, a fundamental parameter to describe magnetization dynamics, is an isotropic scalar for most magnetic materials. Now, at a metal/semiconductor interface, the emergence of anisotropic magnetic damping has been observed.### Topological domain walls in helimagnets

**Topological domain walls in helimagnets**

Topological domain walls in helimagnets, Published online: 05 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0056-5

The observation of three new classes of domain wall demonstrates the importance of topological disclination and dislocation defects in the helimagnet iron germanium, via analogy with grain boundaries in cholesteric liquid crystals.### Observation of roton mode population in a dipolar quantum gas

**Observation of roton mode population in a dipolar quantum gas**

Observation of roton mode population in a dipolar quantum gas, Published online: 05 March 2018; doi:10.1038/s41567-018-0054-7

The roton energy spectrum, originally introduced by Landau, explains the thermodynamic behaviour of strongly interacting liquid helium at low temperature. Now, a similar spectrum has been observed in weakly interacting dipolar quantum gas.### Topological antiferromagnetic spintronics
