Energy can move from a colder region to a hotter one – but the second law of thermodynamics is safe

Can energy move from a colder to a hotter region in a material without violating the second law of thermodynamics? Yes, according to physicists from Trinity College Dublin and the Universidad Complutense of Madrid, who discovered that a quantum effect sometimes forces current to flow around the edges of a sample in a way that…… Continue reading Energy can move from a colder region to a hotter one – but the second law of thermodynamics is safe

Machine learning, harnessed to extreme computing, aids fusion energy development

MIT research scientists Pablo Rodriguez-Fernandez and Nathan Howard have just completed one of the most demanding calculations in fusion science—predicting the temperature and density profiles of a magnetically confined plasma via first-principles simulation of plasma turbulence. Solving this problem by brute force is beyond the capabilities of even the most advanced supercomputers. Instead, the researchers…… Continue reading Machine learning, harnessed to extreme computing, aids fusion energy development

WORKSHOP “PRIME MATTERS”

The Prime Matters workshop aims to bring together world experts in theoretical condensed matter, quantum information and statistical physics. These three areas of physics have many points of contact. The systems integrable are the basis for understanding many condensed matter systems, which also benefit of an approach typical of quantum information theory, based on entanglement…… Continue reading WORKSHOP “PRIME MATTERS”

Scientists turn a hydrogen molecule into a quantum sensor

Physicists at the University of California, Irvine have demonstrated the use of a hydrogen molecule as a quantum sensor in a terahertz laser-equipped scanning tunneling microscope, a technique that can measure the chemical properties of materials at unprecedented time and spatial resolutions. This new technique can also be applied to analysis of two-dimensional materials which…… Continue reading Scientists turn a hydrogen molecule into a quantum sensor
