New use for X-rays: A radar gun for unruly atoms

Using coherent X-rays, a new technique has been discovered for sensing motion and velocity of small groups of atoms. This advance gives an unprecedented, nanoscale view of disordered objects as they are being created - like the thin films used to make solar cells and LCD screens.

Scientists divide magnetic vortices into collectivists and individualists

In manganese monosilicide, microscopic magnetic vortices ?- skyrmions - may behave as 'collectivists' or 'individuals', i.e. they are able to create a single structure, or they can also split up individually. Studying the behaviour of skyrmions will help to create unique quantum devices based on new physical principles.
