Quantum transport response of topological hinge modes

Nature Physics, Published online: 20 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02388-1Topologically protected hinge modes could be important for developing quantum devices, but electronic transport through those states has not been demonstrated. Now quantum transport has been shown in gapless topological hinge states.

Sound interactions across multiple modes

Nature Physics, Published online: 19 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02425-zSome quantum acoustic resonators possess a large number of phonon modes at different frequencies. Direct interactions between modes similar to those available for photonic devices have now been demonstrated. This enables manipulation of multimode states.

Organic molecules pumped to resonance

Nature Physics, Published online: 19 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02410-6Interacting emitters are the fundamental building blocks of quantum optics and quantum information devices. Pairs of organic molecules embedded in a crystal can become permanently strongly interacting when they are pumped with intense laser light.

Superradiant and subradiant states in lifetime-limited organic molecules through laser-induced tuning

Nature Physics, Published online: 19 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02404-4Laser-induced tuning of pairs of lifetime-limited organic emitters allows the controlled creation of superradiant and subradiant entangled states.

Time in a glass

Nature Physics, Published online: 19 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02419-xAgeing is a non-linear, irreversible process that defines many properties of glassy materials. Now, it is shown that the so-called material-time formalism can describe ageing in terms of equilibrium-like properties.

We can see clearly now

Nature Physics, Published online: 14 February 2024; doi:10.1038/s41567-024-02394-3Adaptive optics allows scientists to correct for distortions of an image caused by the scattering of light. Anita Chandran illuminates the nature of the technique.
