Quantum Materials Database accelerates the development of new materials

Researchers at Northwestern's McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science has created a database that takes some of the guesswork out of designing new materials. The team performed systematic analyses of both known and imagined chemical compounds to find their key properties and established a database of the results.

Electrons moving in a magnetic field exhibit strange quantum behavior

Scientists have made the first direct observations of free-electron Landau states and found that the internal rotational dynamics of quantum electrons, or how they move through the field, is surprisingly different from the classical model, and in line with recent quantum-mechanical predictions.
