Cryo-force spectroscopy reveals the mechanical properties of DNA components

Physicists from the University of Basel have developed a new method to examine the elasticity and binding properties of DNA molecules on a surface at extremely low temperatures. With a combination of cryo-force spectroscopy and computer…

Novel approach to coherent control of a three-level quantum system

For the first time, researchers were able to study quantum interference in a three-level quantum system and thereby control the behavior of individual electron spins. To this end, they used a novel nanostructure, in which a quantum system…

The smallest possible system that can be synchronized is discovered

Synchronization is ubiquitous in our everyday life. We experience it for instance when getting jetlagged after a long trip; there, the underlying mechanism is the synchronization of our circadian rhythm to the day-night cycle. Physicists in…
