      Abstract: Author(s): Mehdi Roein-Peikar, Qian Xu, Xuefeng Wang, and Taekjip Ha
      The properties of human cells are determined by their mechanical environment, which they sense when they make contact with it. A new study shows how cells adhere to surfaces presenting heterogeneous nanomechanical environments.

  • Predicting Unconventional High-Temperature Superconductors in Trigonal

    • Authors: Jiangping Hu; Congcong Le, Xianxin Wu
      First page: 041012
      Abstract: Author(s): Jiangping Hu, Congcong Le, and Xianxin Wu
      High-temperature superconductivity—the property of zero electrical resistance at relatively high temperature—is manifested in very limited classes of materials. An examination of the unique relationship between electronic structures and lattice structural units of the two known classes of high-temperature superconductors helps to identify possible new classes of these materials.

      Abstract: Author(s): Adrian Hutter, James R. Wootton, and Daniel Loss
      Error correction is critical in topological quantum computation, but it restricts the quantum gates that can be easily performed. A proposed model shows how to correct errors and perform complex gates by braiding in realistic qubit systems that support non-Abelian parafermions.

      Modeling systems with a large number of interacting electrons is critical to understanding the physical properties of materials and molecules of interest to chemists and physicists. Researchers model a system using a range of numerical techniques and compare results in order to find sources of uncertainty and establish benchmarks.

      Theorists demonstrate a quantum variant of the Kolmogorov-Arnold-Moser theorem, a theorem in classical mechanics that concerns the crossover between integrability and chaos. Integrability breaking in the Lieb-Liniger model, a model describing one-dimensional Bose gases, leads to a deformation, not destruction, of the model’s conserved quantities.

      Abstract: Author(s): Kay Brandner, Keiji Saito, and Udo Seifert
      Heat engines translate thermal energy into useful mechanical work. New results show how the power and efficiency of miniaturized heat engines are related, which paves the way for studies of even smaller systems that experience quantum effects.
