To keep up with today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world, the quest to discover new materials has become more crucial than ever

All spin directions (represented by the spheres) collapse on one or the opposite direction depending on the measured photon polarization

Weizmann Institute researchers suggest one can affect an atom’s spin by...

Biological Molecules Select Their Spin
The finding that a biological molecule – DNA – can discern between quantum states known as spin could have relevance for both...
chiral molecules select electron spins

The method could lead to solar-based production of hydrogen for fuel
