It was just last month that we heard about a brain implant which dispenses a protein to stop seizures in epileptic rats. An unrelated British/Canadian study now suggests that a brain implant in humans, which delivers that same protein, could be used to treat and even reverse the effects of Parkinson's disease.

One of the key concepts in quantum physics is entanglement, in which two or more quantum systems become so inextricably linked that their collective state can't be determined by observing each element individually. Now researchers have developed a ''universal entangler'' that can link a variety of encoded particles on demand. The discovery represents a powerful new mechanism with potential uses in quantum computing, cryptography, and quantum communications.

Author(s): Tomoaki Ota, Shunya Akiyama, Masayuki Hashisaka, Koji Muraki, and Toshimasa Fujisawa Hot electron transport in a quantum Hall edge channel of an AlGaAs/GaAs heterostructure is studied by investigating the energy distribution function in the channel. Ballistic hot-electron transport, its optical-phonon replicas, weak electron-electron scattering, and electron-hole excitation in the Fermi sea are clearly identified in the energy spectra. The authors find that the electron-electron scattering is significantly suppressed with increasing the hot-electron energy well above the Fermi energy. This can be understood as deriving from a suppressed Coulomb potential at larger distances and higher energies.

Author(s): Pin Ho, Anthony K.C. Tan, S. Goolaup, A.L. Gonzalez Oyarce, M. Raju, L.S. Huang, Anjan Soumyanarayanan, and C. Panagopoulos Magnetic skyrmions are promising as highly scalable, stable, and individually addressable elementary units for next-generation memory and computing devices. However, their stability in the absence of external fields and evolution upon confinement are important open questions. The authors present the zero-field stabilization of room-temperature (RT) skyrmions in multilayered Ir/Fe(x)/Co(y)/Pt nanodots. They further show that skyrmion size can be modulated by a factor of four—down to 50 nm—by systematically varying dot size and magnetic interactions. This insight into creating and tailoring RT skyrmions in multilayer nanostructures is of immediate value to material and device design.

17:43 Phys.orgNeutrinos seen in the clustering of galaxies

In early times, the universe was an energetic mix of strongly interacting particles. The first particles to break free from this dense soup were neutrinos, the lightest and most weakly interacting particles of the Standard Model of particle physics. These neutrinos are still around us today, but are very hard to detect directly because they are so weakly interacting. An international team of cosmologists, including Daniel Baumann and Benjamin Wallisch from the University of Amsterdam, have now succeeded in measuring the influence of this 'cosmic neutrino background' on the way galaxies have become clustered during the evolution of the universe. The research was published in Nature Physics this week.
