Wet granular materials
Most studies on granular physics have focused on dry granular media, with no liquids between the grains. However, in geology and many real world applications (e.g. food processing, pharmaceuticals,
Quantum Simulation
Simulating quantum mechanics is known to be a difficult computational problem, especially when dealing with large systems. However, this difficulty may be overcome by using some controllable quantum
Hybrid quantum circuits: Superconducting circuits interacting with other quantum systems
Hybrid quantum circuits combine two or more physical systems, with the goal of harnessing the advantages and strengths of the different systems in order to better explore new phenomena and
Extraordinary momentum and spin in evanescent waves.
It is demonstrated that the transverse momentum and spin push and twist a probe Mie particle in an evanescent field allows the observation of 'impossible' properties of light and of a fundamental field-theory quantity, which was previously considered as 'virtual'.
Chaotic dynamics of falling disks
The study of the motion of flat bodies falling in a viscous mediumdates back at least to Newton and Maxwell, and is relevant to problems in meteorology, sedimentology, aerospace engineering and
