A new study shows that nickel oxide superconductors, which conduct electricity with no loss at higher temperatures than conventional superconductors do, contain a type of quantum matter called charge density waves, or CDWs, that can accompany superconductivity....

Researchers identify how cells move faster through mucus than blood

 Physics General News
 25 July 2022
Researchers at the University of Toronto, Johns Hopkins University and Vanderbilt University have discovered that certain cells move surprisingly faster in thicker fluid—think honey as opposed to water, or mucus as opposed to blood—because their ruffled edges sense the viscosity of their environment...

Study finds ultimate limits of spaceplates in optical systems

 Physics General News
 21 July 2022
Engineers working to miniaturize optical systems for modern electronics have seen great success when it comes to the most familiar components, the lenses and optical sensors. It's been more challenging to reduce the size of the third component of an optical system, the free space between the lens...
