Etalumis ‘reverses’ simulations to reveal new science

Scientists already have robust simulation software packages that model the physics and everything that occurs within the detector. NOVEMBER 13, 2019 by Keri Troutman,¬†Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Scientists have built simulations to help explain behavior in the real world, including modeling for disease transmission and prevention, autonomous vehicles, climate science, and in the search for […]

Manipulating atoms one at a time with an electron beam

New method could be useful for building quantum sensors and computers. David L. Chandler | MIT News Office The ultimate degree of control for engineering would be the ability to create and manipulate materials at the most basic level, fabricating devices atom by atom with precise control. Now, scientists at MIT, the University of Vienna, […]

The fast spin flip process of electrons “spin orbit coupling”

by University of Vienna Metal complexes show a fascinating behavior in their interactions with light, which for example is utilized in organic light emitting diodes, solar cells, quantum computers, or even in cancer therapy. In many of these applications, the electron spin, a kind of inherent rotation of the electrons, plays an important role. Recently, the […]
