To circumvent the limitations of conventional computers in tackling the problems of understanding and modeling the behavior of complex quantum systems, physicists have proposed using well-understood quantum systems called ‘quantum simulators’ (or ‘quantum emulators’) to emulate similar, but otherwise poorly understood, quantum systems.
Scientists at the University of Glasgow have imaged the self-assembly of nanoparticles, unveiling the blueprint for building designer molecular machines atom-by-atom.
A new class of biodegradable nanosized particles that can easily slip through the body’s sticky and viscous mucus secretions to deliver a sustained-release medication cargo.
Researchers have for the first time observed a nanoscale symmetry hidden in solid state matter. They have measured the signatures of a symmetry showing the same attributes as the golden ratio famous from art and architecture.
