Measuring charge with sub-electron resolution in a solid-state device is crucial for quantum technologies and other precision measurement applications.
The low-temperature states of bosonic fluids exhibit fundamental quantum effects at the macroscopic scale, with Bose-Einstein condensation, superfluidity, and superconductivity as well-known examples.
You have probably been taught that valence band holes are essentially just heavy electrons, with a positive charge and a positive effective mass. This is incorrect.
How life formed on Planet Earth is one of the big questions that we want to answer as scientists.
The formation and evolution of stars drives the evolution of galaxies in the universe at all epochs (times), from the earliest observable galaxies to our own Milky Way.
NASA's Kepler mission has provided a legacy data set for the study of stars and their planets.
History has seen us go from fingers to the abacus to electronic calculators, and ultimately to powerful supercomputers, to rapidly solve mathematical and numerical problems.
Shrinking the dimensions of transistors so they can be packed at ever greater density on microchips is a central focus of the semiconductor industry. This focus has two interesting outcomes.
Metallic nanoparticles support coherent surface oscillation of free electrons when excited with a laser.
