It’s all in the twist: Physicists stack 2D materials at angles to trap particles on the nanoscale
University of Washington

In a paper published Feb. 25 in Nature, scientists report that they have developed a system to trap individual excitons — bound pairs of electrons and associated positive charges. This system could form the basis of a novel platform to monitor excitons with precision and develop new quantum technologies.

The first clinical study investigating the use of the direct oral anticoagulant, rivaroxaban, to prevent blood clots in patients with cancer at high-risk published today in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study found no significant reduction in venous thromboembolism or death in the overall 180-day trial period; however, the researchers did observe a lower incidence of these events while patients were actively on the study drug, or during the on-treatment period.
