Kepler-90 makes our solar system not the only one with 8 planets!

Yesterday it was announced that an eighth planet had been confirmed to be orbiting the Sun-like star Kepler-90. What makes this news even more remarkable is the fact that it was discovered by an AI – artificial intelligence.

Breaking electron waves provide new clues to high-temperature superconductivity

Superconductivity is a sought-after effect, but unfortunately it only enters this state at extremely low temperatures. Normal conductors are wasteful and inefficient so the desire to understand superconductivity and replicate the effects at higher temperatures is paramount.

A massless particle which could revolutionize electronics

In 2015, after 85 years of searching, researchers have confirmed the existence of a massless particle called the Weyl fermion. With the unique ability to behave as both matter and anti-matter inside a crystal, this quasiparticle is like an electron with no mass. In 2017 new progress were made toward the creation of a Weyltronics technology. Studying Weyl nodes a team from Princeton University found interesting emergent phenomena. They observed that a metallic phase protected by Weyl nodes persists over a finite interval of the tuning parameter.

New insights in the dynamic of black hole magnetic field

In 2015, for the first time, astronomers confirmed the existence of an intense magnetic field surrounding the event horizon of a supermassive black hole. This much-anticipated discovery fitted an important piece into the understanding of the way black holes affect the space around them. In Recently, another step was achieved in the understanding of the magnetic field around black holes thanks to the precise measurements of the magnetic field in the corona.

A new way to create a magnetic monopole

In Maxwell’s theory, for a perfect symmetry between the electric and magnetic forces, there was one piece missing, the magnetic monopoles. As theoretically demonstrated by Dirac, the existence of a single magnetic monopole would explain quantization of electric charge everywhere in the Universe. Recently, a team from Austria demonstrated that the “angulon quasiparticle” can be seen as a quantum particle on the two-sphere interacting with a field of a magnetic monopole. Intuitively, in the corotating frame, the cloud of bosons rotates around the molecule fast, and this rotation induces a gauge field of a magnetic monopole, similar to the case of electrons orbiting the nuclei.

New understanding of the high temperature superconductor mechanism

Since the 1986 discovery of high-temperature superconductivity in copper-oxide compounds called cuprates, scientists have been trying to understand how these materials can conduct electricity without resistance at temperatures hundreds of degrees above the ultra-low temperatures required by conventional superconductors. These properties so far are not well understood or explained.

Special arrangement of matter in biomolecules protects quantum coherence

Quantum entangled photons have been produced in a class of biological macromolecules known as green fluorescent proteins (derived from bioluminescent organisms like jellyfish). In addition to producing entangled photons, it was found that the structure and shape of the green fluorescent protein (GFP) protected the photons from decoherence by environmental sources. The recent experiment has upturned reigning conventional thought regarding the possibility of quantum states in the biological system.

Graphene could contain an unlimited “clean” energy source

Stochastic processes are ubiquitous in nature. Also known as a random process, they can take multiple forms like a random walk, or a game of chance. Their studies could lead to the discovery of a new source of energy taking the form of a stochastic resonating membrane of graphene.

Nanoparticles can have a stable magnetic levitation

In 1842, the British mathematician Samuel Earnshaw proved that it is not possible to achieve static levitation using any combination of fixed magnets and electric charges. In this case, static levitation means stable suspension of an object against gravity. However, it is possible even at nanoscale with a rotating magnet!

Evidence for Low-mass Star Formation within close vicinity of our very own Supermassive Black Hole Sgr A*

When you think of a black hole, especially a supermassive one, stability and life support may not spring to mind. However, a team of scientists have just challenged that common understanding when they observed this intriguing region to be a birth place for stars.

The frontier between quantum and classical physics

Two of the main differences between classical and quantum physics are causality and quantification. However, the relationship between classical and quantum theory is way more complex than that. To understand this relationship it is necessary to look at the intuitive ideas of the founders of quantum theory. And recently, a new study showed the possibility for the quantification of the amount of coherence present in an arbitrary superposition of coherent states.
