Disorder grants a memory to quantum spins

It has been an open question whether interacting collections of quantum particles can also localize, a phenomenon known as many-body localization. Now, researchers have directly observed this localization in a system of 10 interacting ions, trapped and zapped by electric fields and lasers.

New photonic sensor opens the door to high-speed biodetection

Researchers have developed a new technique for extremely high speed photonic sensing of the mechanical properties of freely flowing particles using an opto-mechano-fluidic resonator (OMFR). This research potentially opens up completely new mechanical 'axes of measurement' on micro/nanoparticles and bioparticles.
