A disturbance in the local magnetic order of a solid body can propagate across a material just like a wave. This wave is named spin wave and its quanta are known as magnons.
Physicists from the University of Kaiserslautern propose the usage of magnons to carry and process information instead of electrons as it is done in...
In case of an inflammation the body releases substances that increase the immune defense. During chronic inflammation, this immune response gets out of control and can induce organ damage.
A research group from the Department of Biomedicine at the University and the University Children’s Hospital of Basel now discovered that innate lymphoid cells...
Prior to this work, ideal light sources (such as perfect lasers) were thought to emit as much light as excited in them via pumping.
Scientists from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) have found between Greenland and Spitsbergen the scours left...
A challenge increasingly important to physicists and materials scientists in recent years has been how to design controllable new materials that exhibit...
