Freeing electrons to better trap them

For the first time, researchers from UNIGE and MBI in Berlin have placed an electron in a dual state - neither freed nor bound - thus confirming a hypothesis from the 1970s. Atoms are composed of electrons moving around a central nucleus they are bound to. More…

Wiggling atoms switch the electric polarization of crystals

Ferroelectric crystals display a macroscopic electric polarization, a superposition of many dipoles at the atomic scale which originate from spatially separated electrons and atomic nuclei. More…
