18:29 ScienceDaily.comWhen a diseased liver disrupts the brain (2)

The liver plays a vital role as a filter in the body. But what happens when it malfunctions? Researchers performed a detailed analysis of hepatic encephalopathy. The scientists were able to observe for the first time in a mouse model that a dysfunction of the liver provokes cerebral molecular disturbances in two weeks, even though no physical symptoms are apparent. Moreover, several molecules are concerned, including two that were previously unknown.

18:29 ScienceDaily.comType of brain cell involved in stuttering identified (2)

Researchers believe that stuttering -- a potentially lifelong and debilitating speech disorder -- stems from problems with the circuits in the brain that control speech, but precisely how and where these problems occur is unknown. Using a mouse model of stuttering, scientists report that a loss of cells in the brain called astrocytes are associated with stuttering. The mice had been engineered with a human gene mutation previously linked to stuttering. The study offers insights into the neurological deficits associated with stuttering.

18:12 Phys.orgScientists unveil first quantum simulation of 3-D topological matter with ultracold atoms (2)

Physicists from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) and Peking University (PKU) have successfully created the world's first 3-D simulation of topological matter consisting of ultracold atoms. Previous attempts at topological matter simulations were limited to lower dimensions, due to challenges on how to characterize 3-D band topology in atomic systems. This breakthrough paves an opening to further examining new topological matter that cannot be well realized in solids. Such never-before-done engineering of artificial material with ultracold atoms may now allow physicists to model unusual phases of matter.

17:21 Aps.org Editors' SuggestionsTwo-dimensional Weyl half-semimetal and tunable quantum anomalous Hall effect (2)

Author(s): Jing-Yang You, Cong Chen, Zhen Zhang, Xian-Lei Sheng, Shengyuan A. Yang, and Gang SuA Weyl point is topologically stable in three dimensions, but is typically vulnerable in two dimensions of space, especially when spin-orbit coupling (SOC) and magnetic ordering are considered. Here, the authors predict a state, labeled as a Weyl half-semimetal, which hosts a stable magnetic Weyl point in two dimensions in the presence of SOC. It is simultaneously a Weyl semimetal and a half metal, such that the low-energy electrons are fully spin-polarized two-dimensional Weyl fermions. A specific material, the monolayer PtCl3, is proposed to realize this state.

15:42 Phys.orgIons clear another hurdle toward scaled-up quantum computing (2)

Scientists at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) have been steadily improving the performance of ion trap systems, a leading platform for future quantum computers. Now, a team of researchers led by JQI Fellows Norbert Linke and Christopher Monroe has performed a key experiment on five ion-based quantum bits, or qubits. They used laser pulses to simultaneously create quantum connections between different pairs of qubits—the first time these kinds of parallel operations have been executed in an ion trap. The new study, which is a critical step toward large-scale quantum computation, was published on July 24 in the journal Nature.
