Séamus Davis's Group detect Cooper pair density waves

 Graphic depiction of a periodic variation in the density of Cooper pairs (pairs of blue arrows pointing up and down) across the surface of a cuprate superconductor.

The prediction was that “Cooper pairs” of electrons in a superconductor could exist in two possible states.

Shear thickening

Neil Lin and Itai Cohen, along with researchers from the University of Edinburgh, have come up with a unique experiment to explain why shear thickening happens.

Cohen group unravel root cause of plant twists and turns

plant root growth

To feed the world’s burgeoning population, producers must grow crops in more challenging terrain – where plant roots must cope with barriers.
