Study explores nanoscale structure of thin films

Scientists discuss a new way to apply a widely used local-structure analysis tool - known as atomic pair distribution function (PDF) analysis - to x-ray scattering data from thin films, quickly yielding high-quality information on the films' atomic structure. The work creates new avenues for studies of nanocrystalline thin films.

Quantum states in a nano-object manipulated using a mechanical system

Scientists have used resonators made from single-crystalline diamonds to develop a novel device in which a quantum system is integrated into a mechanical oscillating system. For the first time, the researchers were able to show that this mechanical system can be used to coherently manipulate an electron spin embedded in the resonator - without external antennas or complex microelectronic structures.
