High-Yield and Ambient-Stable Molecular Devices via Semiconductor Fabrication

A team from IBM Research-Zurich and the Universities of Basel and Zurich developed a new technique to fabricate microelectronic devices by electrically contacting molecules at two well-defined termini. The method allows molecular integration on conventional silicon chips and by standard fabrication methods as used in semiconductor industry. The technique is based on depositing a nanoparticle […]

Scientists Observe Gravitational Anomaly on Earth

Modern physics has accustomed us to strange and counterintuitive notions of reality — especially quantum physics which is famous for leaving physical objects in strange states of superposition. For example, Schrödinger’s cat, who finds itself unable to decide if it is dead or alive. Sometimes however quantum mechanics is more decisive and even destructive. Symmetries are the holy […]
