Universality of dissipative self-assembly from quantum dots to human cells

Nature Physics - Δευ, 20/04/2020 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 20 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0879-8

Biological systems are able to self-assemble in non-equilibrium conditions thanks to a continuous injection of energy. Here the authors present a tool to achieve non-equilibrium self-assembly of synthetic and biological constituents with sizes spanning three orders of magnitude.

Radiative cooling of a spin ensemble

Nature Physics, Published online: 20 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0872-2

Electron spins in solid usually relax their energy through the coupling with phonons in the host lattice. By using the coupling to microwave photons in a cavity as an alternative relaxation path, it is demonstrated that spins can be cooled below the lattice temperature.

Enhanced energy coupling for indirect-drive fast-ignition fusion targets

Nature Physics - Δευ, 20/04/2020 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 20 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0878-9

Experiments realizing the indirect-drive fast ignition scheme for inertial confinement fusion are reported. Enabled by a tightly compressed target, an increase of neutron yield is observed.

Double Chooz <i>θ</i><sub>13</sub> measurement via total neutron capture detection

Nature Physics - Δευ, 20/04/2020 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 20 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0831-y

The Double Chooz collaboration reports the neutrino oscillation parameter θ13 from a measurement of the disappearance of reactor anti-electron neutrinos with the total neutron capture technique.

Dissipate your way to self-assembly

Nature Physics - Δευ, 20/04/2020 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 20 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0888-7

Equilibrium self-assembly processes find free-energy minima but no such general statement holds for systems driven out of equilibrium. A new study has employed laser-induced convective flows to achieve dissipative self-assembly across multiple scales with universal growth and fluctuation statistics.
