Bacteria solve the problem of crowding by moving slowly

Nature Physics, Published online: 23 November 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-01070-6Bacteria are able to move as vast, dense collectives. Here the authors show that slow movement is key to this collective behaviour because faster bacteria cause topological defects to collide together and trap cells in place.

High-harmonic generation from topological surface states

Nature Physics, Published online: 23 November 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-01052-8High-harmonic generation up to the seventh harmonic is observed from the intrinsic three-dimensional topological insulator BiSbTeSe2. The parallel components of the even-order harmonics arise directly from the topological surface states.

Topological defects promote layer formation in <i>Myxococcus xanthus</i> colonies

Nature Physics, Published online: 23 November 2020; doi:10.1038/s41567-020-01056-4Topological defects in active nematic systems such as epithelial tissues and neural progenitor cells can be associated with biological functions. Here, the authors show that defects can play a role in the layer formation of the soil bacterium Myxococcus xanthus.
