Multisensory hybrid material as smart electronic skin

This 'smart skin' developed by researchers is very similar to human skin. It senses pressure, humidity and temperature simultaneously and produces electronic signals. More sensitive robots or more intelligent prostheses are thus conceivable.

Seeing molecules inside a nanometer-sized 'sardine can'

By using a spectrometer to measure a metal-organic framework (MOF) and guest molecule absorbance of two differently polarized types of infrared light, a new method is the first to measure both guest-guest and guest-host interactions and do it in real-time.

Quantum magnets in motion

The behaviour of microscopic quantum magnets has long been a subject taught in lectures in theoretical physics. However, investigating the dynamics of systems that are far out of equilibrium and watching them 'live' has been difficult so far. Now, researchers have accomplished precisely this, using a quantum gas microscope.

Supersolids go circular 2D

In a new study, investigations show how to cool an atomic gas into a supersolid with a circular, 2D shape. The method will allow researchers to further study these exotic states of matter and search for features such as turbulent vortices.
