  • The interaction between perovskite oxides and water can have a significant influence on practical performance. Here the authors study the dynamics of surface water adsorption and hydroxide formation during monolayer formation on a ruthenate.

  • Structural inversion asymmetry in magnetic materials leads to a dissipative chiral damping mechanism. This mechanism is evidenced in the field-driven domain-wall motion in perpendicularly magnetized asymmetric Pt/Co/Pt trilayers.

  • The Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) project is dedicated to the investigation of light–matter interactions at high laser intensities and on short timescales.

  • Studying three Weyl semimetals of the same family — TaAs, TaP and NbP — reveals how the properties of Weyl points and Fermi arcs depend on the spin–orbit coupling and on surface conditions.
