21:11 Phys.org Correlated electrons 'tango' in a perovskite oxide at the extreme quantum limit

A team led by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory has found a rare quantum material in which electrons move in coordinated ways, essentially "dancing." Straining the material creates an electronic band structure that sets the stage for exotic, more tightly correlated behavior—akin to tangoing—among Dirac electrons, which are especially mobile electric charge carriers that may someday enable faster transistors. The results are published in the journal Science Advances.

Molecular self-assembly is a well-known concept in supramolecular chemistry.

It also works with nanoparticles, and researchers take advantage of certain functional groups attached to the particles to guide the particles' organization in a certain direction, e.g. as a basis for the design of new materials.

10:32 Arxiv.org CS To VR or not to VR: Is virtual reality suitable to understand software development metrics?. (arXiv:2109.13768v1 [cs.SE])

Background/Context: Currently, the usual interface for visualizing data is based on 2-D screens. Recently, devices capable of visualizing data while immersed in VR scenes are becoming common. However, it has not been studied in detail to which extent these devices are suitable for interacting with data visualizations in the specific case of data about software development. Objective/Aim: In this registered report, we propose to answer the following question: "Is comprehension of software development processes, via the visualization of their metrics, better when presented in VR scenes than in 2D screens?" In particular, we will study if answers obtained after interacting with visualizations presented as VR scenes are more or less correct than those obtained from traditional screens, and if it takes more or less time to produce those answers. Method: We will run an experiment with volunteer subjects from several backgrounds. We will have two setups: an on-screen application, and a VR

10:32 Arxiv.org CS Efficient Global-Local Memory for Real-time Instrument Segmentation of Robotic Surgical Video. (arXiv:2109.13593v1 [cs.CV])

Performing a real-time and accurate instrument segmentation from videos is of great significance for improving the performance of robotic-assisted surgery. We identify two important clues for surgical instrument perception, including local temporal dependency from adjacent frames and global semantic correlation in long-range duration. However, most existing works perform segmentation purely using visual cues in a single frame. Optical flow is just used to model the motion between only two frames and brings heavy computational cost. We propose a novel dual-memory network (DMNet) to wisely relate both global and local spatio-temporal knowledge to augment the current features, boosting the segmentation performance and retaining the real-time prediction capability. We propose, on the one hand, an efficient local memory by taking the complementary advantages of convolutional LSTM and non-local mechanisms towards the relating reception field. On the other hand, we develop an active global

18:14 Phys.org Optical chip protects quantum technology from errors

In today's digital infrastructure, the data-bits we use to send and process information can either be 0 or 1. Being able to correct possible errors that may occur in computations using these bits is a vital part of information processing and communication systems. But a quantum computer uses quantum bits, which can be a kind of mixture of 0 and 1, known as quantum super-position. This mixture is vital to their power—but it makes error correction far more complicated.

Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) are narrow and long strips of graphene with widths below 100 nm. GNRs that have smooth edges, a sizable bandgap and high charge carrier mobility could be highly valuable for a wide range of electronic and optoelectronic applications. So far, however, engineers have not yet introduced a method to prepare these useful components on a large scale.
