A New Artificial Material Mimics Quantum Entangled Rare Earth Compounds

Physicists have created a new ultra-thin two-layer material with quantum properties that normally require rare earth compounds. This material, which is relatively easy to make and does not contain rare earth metals, could provide a new platform for...

One-Dimensional Red Phosphorous Glows in Unexpected Ways

In a study published in Nature Communications, an international team led by Aalto University researchers has found that fibrous red phosphorous, when electrons are confined in its one-dimensional sub-units, can show large optical responses – that...
