Unusual superconductivity in twisted three-layer graphene

Caltech engineers observed an unusual phenomenon in twisted three-layer graphene. So-called “twisted magic angle[{” attribute=””>graphene” provides the ability to turn superconductivity off and on with a literal flip of a switch. This has allowed engineers at Caltech to observe an unusual phenomenon that may shed new light on superconductivity in general. The research was recently …

Years after the pandemic, longtime COVID patients are still searching for answers

COVID-19 is still here, causing people first, second, or even third infections (and beyond) as the novel coronavirus continues to mutate into more contagious forms. But millions of people who got sick a long time ago have yet to see a full recovery. They live with prolonged COVID or post-COVID conditionsgeneral terms for a variety …

Earth spinning faster and recording its shortest day is no reason to panic, scientists say

While the Earth on June 29 has effectively record his shortest day Since the adoption of the atomic clock standard in 1970 – at 1.59 milliseconds less than 24 hours – scientists say this is a normal fluctuation. Yet news of the faster turnover has led to misleading social media posts about the significance of …

Powerful cosmic explosions left abundant stardust in the solar system

Recent research has revealed that the amount of stardust created by supergiant stars and spread through space by massive cosmic explosions called supernovae present in the solar system is greater than previously believed. The revised stardust analysis was made possible by the NanoSIMS ion probe which is able to measure the distribution of isotopes – …
