Chiral magnetic effect generates quantum current: Separating left- and right-handed particles in a semi-metallic material produces anomalously high conductivity
Science Daily / Posted 5 days ago
The material the scientists worked with, zirconium pentatelluride, has a surprising trait: When placed in parallel electric and magnetic fields, it responds with an imbalance in the number of right- and left-handed particles--a chiral imbalance. That... Read more

Research leads to new discoveries about structure of human hair
PhysOrg / Posted 16 days ago
To distinguish between the different regions of hair, the scientists had to use a very small x-ray beam at the NSLS. A recent study on the detailed micro-structure of human hair reveals new details about the structure of a single strand of human... Read more
