<i>Colloquium</i>: Topologically protected transport in engineered mechanical systems

Author(s): Tirth Shah, Christian Brendel, Vittorio Peano, and Florian MarquardtArtificially engineered mechanical systems, sometimes called metamaterials, offer many promising applications on length scales ranging from macroscopic systems to the nanoscale. A topic of particular interest is the existence of topologically protected phononic edge states...

<i>Colloquium</i>: Magnetotactic bacteria: From flagellar motor to collective effects

Author(s): M. Marmol, E. Gachon, and D. FaivreMagnetotactic bacteria have a built-in compass, in the form of a magnetosome chain made up of magnetic biominerals, that allows them to passively align along terrestrial magnetic field lines. They also sense oxygen gradients and swim using at least one flagellum. Hence, these bacteria are self-propelled...

The standard model effective field theory at work

Author(s): Gino Isidori, Felix Wilsch, and Daniel WylerThe standard model is successful at describing most of the data at the electroweak scale, but there are indications that new physics should exist at a higher energy scale. To identify, quantify, and elucidate the new physics, one can use the framework of the standard model effective field theory....

Electrical control of magnetism by electric field and current-induced torques

Author(s): Albert Fert, Ramamoorthy Ramesh, Vincent Garcia, Fèlix Casanova, and Manuel BibesElectronic devices that incorporate magnetism, called spintronic devices, can increase the functionality of electronic circuits and lead to increases in efficiency. Such devices are useful if the magnetization can be manipulated electrically rather than by magnetic...

Spontaneous scalarization

Author(s): Daniela D. Doneva, Fethi M. Ramazanoğlu, Hector O. Silva, Thomas P. Sotiriou, and Stoytcho S. YazadjievRecent observations of compact astrophysical objects have opened the possibility to probe the nature of gravity in its strong-field regime. Such observations could reveal deviations from general relativity or the standard model. Spontaneous...

Time-resolved ARPES studies of quantum materials

Author(s): Fabio Boschini, Marta Zonno, and Andrea DamascelliTime-resolved angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy provides access to light-induced changes in the electronic band structure and interactions of solids, and to the out-of-equilibrium electron dynamics. This article reviews the history and future prospects for the development of the technique,...
