In the realm of quantum physics, colliding molecules can react as balls or batons 

heat transfer in graphene

A nanothermometer is thousands of times better at detecting heat transfer at the atomic level

Machinery based on single atoms may be able to bend the laws of thermodynamics

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...

The experimental system: two supersonic valves followed by two skimmers. The blue beam passes through a curved magnetic quadrupole guide, and the merged beam (purple) enters a quadrupole mass spectrometer. B is a front view of the quadrupole guide
