When magnetism meets topology

Researchers have discovered that the magnetic moments in pyrochlore iridates indeed order in the all-in all-out structure. This confirms theoretical predictions and allows the elusive correlated Weyl semimetal state to be realised in these materials.

'Jumping film' harnesses the power of humidity (w/video)

Scientists have developed a film that curls up and straightens out autonomously when exposed to tiny, barely measurable changes in ambient humidity. When irradiated with ultraviolet light, which causes changes in the film?s ability to absorb and desorb water, it can even 'jump' into the air.
