Majorana runners go long range: new topological phases of matter unveiled.

Researchers from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, MIT and Harvard University have discovered a mechanism that enhances the presence of Majorana particles at the edges of a topological superconductor, thanks to the presence of long-range magnetic interactions. Moreover, they have shown that it is possible to find new topological phases of matter by merging distant Majoranas…… Continue reading Majorana runners go long range: new topological phases of matter unveiled.

Descubren nuevas fases topológicas de la materia

Investigadores de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid, del Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts (MIT) y de la Universidad de Harvard, han descubierto un mecanismo que estabiliza la conducción de partículas de Majorana en los bordes de un superconductor topológico, mediante interacciones magnéticas de largo alcance que las hacen más propicias. Además, han demostrado que es posible…… Continue reading Descubren nuevas fases topológicas de la materia

The LHC obtains the best measurement of the mass of the W boson

The weak interaction, one of the four fundamental forces of nature, is mediated by two bosons: W and Z. Now the gigantic detector ATLAS of the large hadron collider of CERN has recorded the first measure of great precision of the mass of the W boson Its value is around 80370 megaelectronvolts. The W boson…… Continue reading The LHC obtains the best measurement of the mass of the W boson
