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.

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

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.

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0880-2

Compton scattering experiments off helium atoms for photon energies close to the ionization threshold reveal that electrons are not only emitted in the direction of the momentum transfer but also backwards.

Magnetically driven phonon instability enables the metal–insulator transition in h-FeS

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0857-1

A detailed and systematic X-ray and neutron scattering study of hexagonal iron sulfide uncovers the critical role of spin–phonon coupling in promoting the metal–insulator transition in this system.

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0855-3

A passive, heralded and high-fidelity quantum memory network node has been realized, which connects simultaneously to two quantum channels provided by orthogonally aligned optical fibre cavities coupled with a single atom.

Ferromagnetic Kitaev interaction and the origin of large magnetic anisotropy in α-RuCl<sub>3</sub>

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0874-0

α-RuCl3 is a promising candidate for realizing the Kitaev quantum spin liquid, but the physics governing its magnetic behaviour remain elusive. Resonant elastic X-ray scattering data now set unambiguous constraints on the leading terms in the Hamiltonian.

Photon-assisted tunnelling of zero modes in a Majorana wire

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0858-0

Majorana bound states at the end of nanowires may be used for quantum computation if they can be coupled sufficiently strongly. Here, the Copenhagen lab show strong and tunable coupling, a step along the road towards devices.

Measurement and microscopic description of odd–even staggering of charge radii of exotic copper isotopes

Δευ, 13/04/2020 - 00:00

Nature Physics, Published online: 13 April 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-0868-y

Isotopes with an odd number of neutrons are usually slightly smaller in size than their even-neutron neighbours. In charge radii of short-lived copper isotopes, a reduction of this effect is observed when the neutron number approaches fifty.

What happens to topological materials when their electrons are strongly interacting is an open question. Shao and others demonstrate that ZrSiSe is a material that can address this as it has a topological band structure and non-trivial correlations.
