Surface-tension-induced budding drives alveologenesis in human mammary gland organoids

Δευ, 04/10/2021 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 04 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01336-7

The development of glands involves cylindrical branches transforming into spherical alveoli. Now there is evidence to suggest that this process can be understood as a budding instability driven by a decrease in tension anisotropy in the tissue.

Unconventional sequence of correlated Chern insulators in magic-angle twisted bilayer graphene

Πέμ, 30/09/2021 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 30 September 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01347-4

In addition to the broken time-reversal symmetry that typifies Chern insulators, twisted bilayer graphene hosts a set of topological states with broken translational symmetry.

Error-protected qubits in a silicon photonic chip

Nature Physics, Published online: 27 September 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01333-w

Entangled photon states can be used to make quantum information more robust. A photonic experimental implementation with eight qubits shows that error-protection schemes can increase the success rate of running a quantum algorithm.

Observation of interband collective excitations in twisted bilayer graphene

Nature Physics, Published online: 27 September 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01327-8

Moiré potentials substantially alter the electronic properties of twisted bilayer graphene at a magic twist angle. A propagating plasmon mode, which can be observed with optical nano-imaging, is associated with transitions between the moiré minibands.

Close to the edge

The tin isotope 100Sn is key to understanding nuclear stability, but little is known about its properties. Precision measurements of closely related indium isotopes have now pinned down its mass.

Phase behaviours of superionic water at planetary conditions

Πέμ, 23/09/2021 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 23 September 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01334-9

Superionic water is believed to exist in the interior of ice giant planets. By combining machine learning and free-energy methods, the phase behaviours of water at the extreme pressures and temperatures prevalent in such planets are predicted.

Mass measurements of <sup>99–101</sup>In challenge ab initio nuclear theory of the nuclide <sup>100</sup>Sn

Nature Physics, Published online: 23 September 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01326-9

Accurate mass measurements of the indium isotopes adjacent to the doubly magic 100Sn provide critical benchmarks for ab initio theory, which withstands the challenge.

Experimental observation of non-Abelian topological acoustic semimetals and their phase transitions

Πέμ, 16/09/2021 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 16 September 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01340-x

Non-Abelian topology allows topological charges in multi-gap systems to be converted by braiding of different band nodes. Such multi-gap effects are experimentally observed in an acoustic semimetal.

Imaging phonon-mediated hydrodynamic flow in WTe<sub>2</sub>

Πέμ, 16/09/2021 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 16 September 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01341-w

When interactions between electrons in a material are strong, they can start to behave hydrodynamically. Spatially resolved imaging of current flow in a three-dimensional material suggests that electron–electron interactions are mediated by phonons.

Robust storage qubits in ultracold polar molecules

Nature Physics, Published online: 09 September 2021; doi:10.1038/s41567-021-01328-7

The hyperfine states of ultracold polar molecules are a strong candidate for storing quantum information. Identifying and eliminating all detectable causes of decoherence has extended the qubit coherence time beyond 5.6 s in RbCs molecules.
